UNDEFINED TERRITORIES – Lucie McIntosh
As part of Head On photography festival 2015, Saint Cloche is excited to present Lucie McIntosh’s Undefined Territories. A series of subtle and intimate interventions, using photography, framing and installation devices to invite us to explore our own process of observing. They speak to the sublime, evading easy definition. Upon investigation, there is far more at stake here than just the sublime. But an unfolding that explores a process of vision. An un-seeing.
A visual artist working and living in Melbourne, Lucie has shown her work in a number of solo and group exhibitions (The QUT Art Museum, The Judith Wright Centre for Contemporary Art, First Site Gallery and ACCA).
In her latest body of work, we are reminded of concrete photography: the work does not rely on a connection to an external reality. It employs alternative installation methods, defining the un-defined, speaking the un-spoken. Lucie gives meaning to what is, by what is not.
What is not there, has as much importance as what is there, we can always understand things by what they are not. Somehow this causes a moment of relief. Because the possibilities of what something isn’t are infinite, there is no single answer.
