Uncharted Territory was the name of the 2013 Adelaide Central School of Art graduate exhibition, where I presented my Honours year work.
This body of work explores the notion that representations of violence are able to infiltrate reality; that they may provide cathartic relief, inspire a yearning for violence, or manifest terror. Paramount to this body of work was the gaze of the viewer and the subjectivity they each bring to images of violence, as without these subjective gazes, the boundary between reality and representation remains absolute.
These works interrogate the boundary between reality and representation to explore the ability of one to bleed into the other. Perception is distorted in order to undermine the objectivity of vision, while voyeurism is invited to provoke the viewer into contemplating the implicit role they play in the manifestation of violence.
These are images of some of the works exhibited.
