Coming of age within regional Queensland is a transitional experience saturated with the images and identifiers of a male dominated culture; where sports, agriculture, and "hard yakka" reign supreme. Combining documentary photography with site-specific performance, Sugar explores existing tensions within femininity, womanhood and familial identity. Performing within the artist's grandmother's home using tactile objects and materials, the images work to reconcile, reclaim and reflect upon a multidimensional femininity; ultimately asking, "what is it to be feminine?"
Sugar by Katelyn-Jane Dunn will be exhibited at 107 Projects, Redfern as a part of Head On Festival from the 21st May to 8th June 2014. Katelyn-Jane Dunn is an emerging photo-media artist from Brisbane, Queensland and is a Bachelor of Photography undergraduate at the Queensland College of Art. She is also the Coordinator of the Queensland Centre for Photography biennial festival, the Queensland Festival of Photography.
This exhibition is part of the Head On Photography Festival.
