Articulate Project Space in Sydney celebrates the launch of their new space, ArticulateUpstairs, with an exhibition of new work by photographer, Yvette Hamilton – A Loved One Sleeping.
Inspired by Victorian-era mourning portraiture Hamilton memorializes the creative space that was the QueenStStudios/Frasers Artist Studio Residencies and which was housed in a Chippendale warehouse space, offered to artists as part of the Frasers Central Park development. Hamilton was amongst the last group of artists to inhabit the studios before they were handed back to the developers and her work responds to the inherent tension of the site as it teetered on the edge of its demise. The photographic and video works taken during and after her residency explore presence and absence.
Yvette Hamilton is an Australian artist working in photomedia, film, video and installation. Her practice examines and explores the liminal realm between space and consciousness, primarily concentrating on the ineffable, the immaterial and the sublime.
A Loved One Sleeping officially opens tomorrow night, Friday 24 May, 6-8pm.
