UNDER MY SKIN

Under My Skin is an exhibition of photographic work by highly acclaimed Melbourne-based artist Polixeni Papapetrou. The exhibition comprises 11 works drawing from four different series by Papaetrou: Phantomwise (2002), Between Worlds (2009), The Dreamkeepers (2012), and The Ghillies (2013). In each of these series, the key character or characters in Papapetrou’s photographs are masked, a device which is given ample and imaginative reign in her work overall which deals in the psychologically poised world of archetypes, getting at and under the skin of fairytales and mythologies both personal and cultural.

Presented in association with Neville Pantazis, Parap Fine Foods, Darwin.

Polixeni Papapetrou is represented by Stills Gallery, Sydney.
