Museum of Photography – Seoul
August 28th, 2011 to September 26th, 2011
Curated by Alasdair Foster
New Worlds curated by Alasdair Foster for the Hanmi Museum of Photography, Seoul presents the work of five Australian photomedia artists. While each has a distinctive style and approach, all seek to travel beyond the known world of the real. They are explorers of the psyche; adventurers in possibility. Each artist creates not just an image but an atmosphere, a narrative, a mise-en-scene. A new world complete and coherent in all its aspects. Each artist also draws on the past to inform their creations. Personal memories, popular myth, regal personalities and evolving ecologies are just some of the threads woven through the imaginative fabric of the picture.
