Haunting and offbeat, the images in the latest exhibition at the Flinders City Gallery, Penumbral Tales, present the familiar landscapes and locales of South Australia in an unsettling and provocative light.
The exhibition is the University’s contribution to SALA, the annual celebration of local artists, and features works by Alice Blanch, Odette England, Gee Greenslade, Mark Kimber, Sue Kneebone, Hailey Lane, Deborath Paauwe, CJ Taylor and James Tylor.
“The exhibition brings together a strong group of established and emerging South Australian photographers all of whom have very distinct and unique approaches to image making but also share a great love of photography’s ability to reveal the aspects of our culture that often remain hidden,” says Mark Kimber, who is also a curator of the exhibition.
The work of the contemporary photographers is juxtaposed with material selected from the Flinders University Art Museum collection and from the State Library of South Australia’s archives to create a conversation between the old and the new.
“These artists are fascinated with the ways in which our art heritage influences and inspires us,” Mr Kimber said.
The exhibition at the Flinders City Gallery, located in the State Library of South Australia on North Terrace, runs until 20 September.
There will be an In Conversation event with the artists at 2pm on Saturday, July 25 at the Gallery. Please RSVP on (08) 8207 7055 if you would like to attend.
