Out of Obscurity presents a speculative journey in response to the series of cloud studies produced in the 1920s by Alfred Stieglitz titled Equivalents. From the disorienting perspectives of aerial photography to physical manipulation of photography’s material properties, the exhibition draws together visions of the sky produced by a range of international artists including Boomoon, Michael Benson, Edward Burtynsky, Julie Cockburn, Mona Kuhn, Michael Lundgren, John Maclean, Chris McCaw, Wang Ningde, Chloe Sells, Randy West, Hannah Whitaker and Letha Wilson.
Invited Curator Magali Avezou brings together five international contemporary artists, Alessandro Dandini de Sylva, Tom Lovelace, Giulia Marchi, Ryan L. Moule and Sophy Rickett, who each address questions of form, colour, movement and the surface dynamics of the photographic print, with two unique sound works by Leo Komazawa, and Felicia Atkinson, created to respond to the space of the exhibition.
Through the absorbing sensorial dialogue established between sound and sight, the exhibition explores the intuitive and metaphysical aspects of abstraction.
