Voices Behind Glass

Brisbane’s Natalie Billing reproduces 200 images from old photo-albums on porcelain slivers, and suspends them from the ceiling on ribbons. Divorced from the context of personal memory, the snaps become generic, aesthetic. Scissors sitting on a pedestal suggest that the ties could be cut and the images repossessed or smashed.

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands where the IMA now stands. We pay our respect to Elders, past, present and emerging.
