PETA CLANCY ‘Undercurrent’ series in the Ballarat Foto Biennale 24.08. – 20.10.19

September 19, 2019

Peta Clancy currently features in the Ballarat International Foto Biennale ‘Capital’, an exhibition that explores the use of the photography as a method for reflecting upon systems of value and exchange in contemporary Indigenous and settler cultures. Clancy’s body of work ‘Undercurrent’ involves a process of manually manipulating and re-photographing images to challenge our views on what may have been missed or denied. The work investigates an unmarked massacre site on DjaDja Wurrung country that is now submerged underwater. She binds two images of the same landscape that shift subtly in colour and focus to draw attention to hidden historical moments.

Join the artist in conversation with curators Naomi Cass and Gareth Syvret to hear more the making of ‘Undercurrent’ at the National Centre For Photography in Ballarat. Clancy will also be exhibiting work in the upcoming group show at DMG ‘Mountains become islands’ from 11.10. – 03.11.19.
