The launch of Vic McEwan’s solo exhibition, Shadows and Consequences will be opened by Prof. Mark Howden, Director of the Climate Change Institute at the Australian National University.
Hosted by the Cad Factory and PhotoAccess at the Huw Davies Gallery.
The setting will be a little different to the usual do’s, so rug up and bring a thermos, because the theme of our opening is a winter warmer! The opening will be hosted outdoors in a garden (with heaters!) and as per current public health regulations, only small groups allowed through the gallery at a time.
Shadows and Consequences is a series of still and moving image works that invite audiences to re-consider their relationships with the natural environment and its non-human communities.
Photographs of species profoundly affected by human transformation of their habitats are projected onto contemporary landscapes, enabling surface textures, air movements and atmospheric conditions to re-animate individual animals and insects as ghostlike presences in locations significant to their lives. As the projections are re-documented to create the final works, they draw our attention to the simultaneous presence and absence of these creatures in their, and our, places.
