"Spatial Narratives 3"
2001-08-23 until 2001-09-23
Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts
Perth, WA, AU

This exhibition of photographs, Spatial Narratives 3 (Melbourne, Milano, Mexico City), is a culmination of Christopher Kollerís engagement with the issue of the space of cities over the past five years. The artistís investigation of the ways in which social, cultural, political and economic forces influence architecture and the configuration of streets and open spaces is carried out in these three distinct cities. The way people use space and how they see themselves and each other in terms of their use of it in relation to gender, age and class are also explored.

Milan, a city whose origins are in an Ancient Roman fortification superimposed over a Celtic settlement, offers dense layers of evidence of dominant political factions and conquering cultures. Early Christians reworked the Roman city, medieval prosperity gave form to the great Duomo and Napoleon caused boulevards to cut through the compacted accumulation of centuries. Shards of varied architectural sediment are thrown up against one another by the conflicting succession of regimes with their competing vision of the city.
