Magali Duzant At Parramatta Artists Studio
17 oct 2015 by art:i:curate team
Working with time-based processes Magali incorporates photography, video and text to examine the roles of technology and translation as mediators of our experiences as well as our desires to track, record and analyse our daily lives. Her latest photographic project 'Anna / Blue', which is a work still in progress, consists of a modified slide projector exposure unit that creates long exposure cyanotype prints over the course of an exhibition.
Magali Duzant will present her new photographic project as part of the group exhibition 'Unbound' at Parramatta Artists Studio in Sydney. The exhibition explores the blurring, shifting lines of contemporary photography through works that span the digital, analogue and sculptural realms. The traditions of photography, including the space of the darkroom, the materiality of tradition, are not negated but complemented by newer technologies embraced in the work.
Magali will give an artist talk on the occasion of the closing reception on the 17th of October.
