From the Badlands of the USA to the Chalk Cliffs of Rügen Germany, she has explored monumental eroded landscapes to generate what she calls ‘luminous voids’ a visual poetry of the unknown. By reflecting upon on the ongoing presence of the past in the now, this new work asks us to contemplate intimacies of the unknown and the ruptures between our experience and knowledge of the world.

April 21 to July 1 Australian Exotica is a touring exhibition from the Monash Gallery of Art. It draws on the MGA’s nationally significant collection of Australian photography and showcases a range of work that engages with the theme of the exotic antipodes. Ever since the 15th century, when European cartographers began including the contour of Terra Australis Incognita (the unknown land of the south) in their speculative maps of the globe, the continent of Australia has been thought of as an exotic place. For many of the artists in this exhibition, this European vision is something that needs to be subverted and critiqued. For others, the idea of living in an eccentric environment, with surreal undertows, continues to inform a distinctively Australian sense of place.
