++ hindmarsh prize 2018 / selected artist (11/21) ++ clarity in the unresolved reflects the artist’s ongoing and deep interest in seeking an understanding of place and belonging. this has anchored much of kirstie rea’s work over the past three decades. the photographs on each glass panel are one image, one shot, with no digital manipulation. they are the reflection on, and the image through the glass in the doors, as one image. cut and installed at an angle the glass panels reflect the partially open doors that first captured the reflections photographed. this suggestion of open doors offers possibilities and ongoing ways forward with our conversations, the artist seeks to acknowledge our past history since colonisation and remind us that we all need to participate.
the artist is represented by sabbia gallery, sydney and suki & hugh gallery, bungendore.
see all the shortlisted works daily in the fitters workshop, adjacent canberra glassworks, daily from 10 am to 4 pm until september 30.
