Photography by Genevieve Swifte
An associated exhibition of the Head On Photo Festival 2015
‘Trespass’ operates as series of echoes thrown beyond some limit; a horizon line, a window’s edge, the surface of a still body of water. Playful, liminal, the imagery explores that sliver of photographic space that bleeds outwards, establishing a poetics of mirroring between the object photographed and an iconography borrowed from a far older lexicon. Here, landscape is paired with abstracted approaches towards self-portraiture and baroque imagery of angelic forms is evoked via archives of ornithological specimens. Native swans, parrots, owls and a vulture’s wing are carefully lit, framed and fused with representations of the body and the earth. Taken over many years, vast distances and across genres, this exhibition consists of pigment prints from black and white negatives, many of which are paired together on the same sheet of paper.
‘Trespass’ is supported by the ACT Government.
