Laura Moore, Yiorgo Yiannopoulos, Louise Baker

PhotoAccess (Manuka Art Center)

Open: Mon: closed, Tue - Fri: 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., Sat - Sun: 12 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Admission: free

Laura Moore, Framed
Laura Moore presents Framed, a series of life-sized prints, in which subjects appear posed within the confines of the photographic frame. Moore lays bare the normally hidden exploitative relationship between the human subject and the artist by inviting artists themselves to pose within the confines of a literally constructed space, negotiating the frame with their bodies. At a time when we absorb more images than ever before, Framed poses ethical questions about the creation, and consumption, of photographic portraiture.
Yiorgo Yiannopoulos, Love Shack
In Love Shack, Yiorgo Yiannopoulos explores the balance between the public and private self, focusing on men’s public toilets as places of mundane necessity, and homosexual activity. Posing as an initiate, Yiannopoulos collected a dossier of found notes, samples and evidentiary material to create contemporary portraits. Exploring usually hidden identities, Love Shack speaks to the ways in which we negotiate our desires in public, and in private. 
Louise Baker, That Jumping Guy
That Jumping Guy by Louise Baker comments on the tradition of photographic portraiture in light of modern technology, and patterns of consumption. Baker creates a living-room installation, overwhelmingly adorned with images of ‘that jumping guy’. The image itself, however, is one of fragility and spontaneity: Baker has simply captured the briefest moment of a guy jumping in mid-air.
