Black and grey image made from layers of maps.

‘Reconfigured/Rediscovered’ brings together a group of artists to extend our perceptions of photography and image-making into new realms. Highlighting the permeability of photography, the exhibition questions the relationship between image and reality, asking how images operate and how they can be created without a camera.

Forms of photography that have been liberated from a traditional relationship between camera and print are explored as the selected artists negotiate the possibilities of installation, time and space, and early photographic techniques.

‘Reconfigured/Rediscovered’ challenges the very nature of pictorial representation - and photography's inherent self-reflexivity with examples of bold, boundary-pushing experimentation.

Featuring: Christian Capurro, Ben Cauchi, Danica Chappell, Peta Clancy, Daniel Crooks, Izabela Pluta and Robyn Stacey.

Official Exhibition of the PHOTO 2021 International Festival of Photography.

‘Reconfigured/Rediscovered’ is a group exhibition on display at Town Hall Gallery from Saturday 23 January to Saturday 10 April 2021.
