Yèqŭ

Artist talk: 11am, Saturday 15 November 2014

Darwin-based photographer Fiona Morrison’s solo exhibition yè​qǔ continues her interest in the nocturnal, or more precisely ‘the shift in reality that accompanies nightfall’. Often set in suburbia or suburban hinterlands, Morrison’s night-time vignettes are generally devoid of people even in a densely populated city such as Beijing, China, where the images for this current series were shot. ‘The lack of physical human presence’, writes Morrison, ‘invokes a memory and/or a trace of people who are invisible and forgotten’. Morrison’s photographs also function as a record of and aesthetic response to local architecture as well as the idea and affect of ‘locale’.
