Just a phantom: a borderless shadow

Until August 14th

Mere Phantoms is a partnership between Maya Elsan and Jamie Robson, an artist who explores the relationship between memory and architecture, people and places using shadow play. For her 2018 work ShadowsWithoutBorders, the duo visited refugee camps, squats and settlements in Athens and Istanbul. She led a paper-cutting and shadow workshop there with her children and family. Some of the works created during this trip are included in the exhibition along with a 3.5x3.5 meter shadow projection tent and a custom made flashlight. During the exhibition, visitors can work on the artwork by adding their own cutouts to a growing interactive installation, picking up a flashlight and animating a complex paper tableau. I can do it. The simultaneous exhibition of the gallery includes ARTS 2022. This is an annual jury exhibition of local art hosted by the Sally Arts Council. Atheana Picha: Echoes, a window mural celebrating a coastal indigenous goat horn bracelet. Charles Campbell: Black Breath Archive, an audiovisual exhibition by an artist from Jamaica based in Victoria.
