Indepth Arts News:

"Pieces of Eight: A Unique Group of Photomedia Practitioners"
2007-08-16 until 2007-08-28
Australian Center for Photography
Paddington, NS, AU

Pieces of Eight marks the first time a creative team of staff members from the Australian Centre for Photography have exhibited together in over ten years. Diverse in their ideas, processes and experience – while united by a common fervour for photography – each of the exhibiting photographers bring a fresh, individual approach to the medium. “It’s exciting to have the opportunity to exhibit together after working so closely day to day” says Bec Dean, “we’re all at different stages in our career and it’s nice to be able to create an exhibition that is interesting and relevant artistically, while also being supportive to each individual’s practice”.

Dean explores complex connections between personal, cultural and cinematic/literary narratives in her self portraits; Furno turns her lens to the urban environment with long exposures exploring a balance of colour, shape, texture and pattern; Ibanez, a seasoned documenter of the Sydney club scene, applies his eye for the instantaneous to the contemporary quotidian; Knight uncovers the mechanics of the timepiece - photographing watch parts to produce pensive and commanding images; Luscombe blurs the boundaries between artistic and commercial imagery as he traverses fashion and the surreal; Momtazi relaunches her photographic practice with her series Beginnings, revealing a fascination with nature’s talent for design; Somerville contemplates loss and fragmentation, drawing together the faded facades of what is remembered and what is left behind; and Watkins combines familiar and foreign objects with near and distant landscapes to recall personal souvenirs and sentimental voyages.

Participating are:
DIEGO IBANEZ b. Sydney, Australia
GARTH KNIGHT
b. Tasmania, Australia
TOM LUSCOMBE
b. Adelaide, Australia
TORUNN MOMTAZI
b. Norway
JESSICA SOMERVILLE

They invite you into this visual exchange of ideas and practices from 16 to 28 August – don’t miss it.
