HEAD ON at 107 is BACK and it is LIVE! We are excited to announce a new group of artists two of which have shown in this portal before. This popular Head On exhibition features photography in its endless diversity. Each artist tells a unique story employing different agendas and a range of photographic styles.
The artists are CHRISTINE ANSORGE, KATE BALLIS, ALLAN COKER, FRANCIS MINIEN, NATALIE MROZ, SUZAN PEKTAS, FIONA RUCK and KELLY SLATER. Accompanying in the Theatre Space is JIM ANDERSON.
Christine Ansorge in Nonagenerian presents direct portraits of older Australians challenging negative perceptions of ageing.
In Kate Ballis’ Liminality she ‘candy-coats’ Californian landscapes employing infrared light emitted by plants via the photosynthesis process to make the desert a fascinating subject in moody reds and blacks.
Faces of India by Allan Coker connects us with the people of India. People yield through their gaze into his lens giving striking insight into their lives.
Francis Minien in Abstractual takes unenhanced everyday objects from our daily life that we often do not notice - a curtain, a wall, a vase – the actual – and makes us see them with fresh eyes.
Natalie Mroz’ Pilgrimage explores Orthodox Christian practices in Ethiopia, Africa. This rarely portrayed country is modernising rapidly yet ancient spiritual practices remain strong.
Suzan Pektas Dreams of the Black Sea takes us to Turkey. She was raised on The Black Sea coast and has drawn from this background an engaging cinematic narrative of engaging beauty.
Fiona Ruck with The Agony and the Ecstasy presents a fresh look at sports photography making the body in sport look more like dancers the Australian Ballet than footy blokes Australian Rules.
In Unplaced Kelly Slater poses visual proof that monoculture plantation forests displace and replace the stamp of native species that once dominated the landscapes of New Zealand and Australia.
