UNSW Galleries is taking a break from normal operations and will temporarily close to the public from 24 March 2020 until further notice. We are prioritising the health of our staff and community and hope to be open again soon. As we adapt to the COVID-19 health emergency in Australia, we will be supporting our exhibiting artists by sharing projects online and developing new initiatives to connect with audiences.

Skye Wagner’s photographs explore the circulation and digital malleability of contemporary images. Made from physical objects and printed imagery, they mix vernacular photographic tropes, commodity goods and cultural fragments. The original images and objects are released from their prescribed function and become part of an unruly network that moves throughout works in the exhibition. Animals, food, body parts and consumer products all form incongruous relations. In this mix, things appear out of control, on the verge of becoming something else, and wanting to escape the confines of the frame.

WHERE: UNSW GALLERIES
ADDRESS: CNR OF OXFORD ST & GREENS RD, PADDINGTON NSW 2021
