Public lecture 5: Prudence Murphy

"Hovership", 2009

We are pleased to announce that Prudence Murphy has accepted our offer to lecture on Monday April 4th.

My work probes the details of our quotidian existence, documenting our ritual and play, in an attempt to explore the relationship between behaviour and experience.

My recent work has been concerned with capturing a fleeting period in a child’s development or a chance moment of play. The most recent of these works, Future Forms (2010), is a typological series of found Lego structures which have been printed on a magnified scale, emphasizing the monumental and sculptural nature of these manifestations of a child’s mind.

“Photography & place” – AGNSW

Ingeborg Tyssen

“Bringing together over 90 works, the artists in this exhibition explore concepts of place and the role of the photographer as storyteller. The evolution of ‘landscape’ photography is demonstrated, from location specific works in the 1970s, to recent works that draw on the frictions between nature, culture and history. The exhibition also traces innovative developments in photographic techniques, including montage, Instamatic and Polaroid works of the 1970s, series from the 1980s and contemporary work focusing on the detail and the intimacies of the local.”
