The Fringe Shutter Collective’s upcoming exhibition, Contrast: A Working Title explores the concepts of sameness and difference inherent in the societies where we may find ourselves. Through various interpretations of a stimulus, in this case the word “contrast”, the Fringe Shutter Collective display the diversity of contemporary communities, and the ability of the photographic medium to exploit the notion that there are moments of truth and of deception.
The multiplicity of the word “contrast”, even within the limited context of the photographic world, works to communicate the Fringe Shutter Collective’s divergent approaches to the photographic medium and allow for the creation of layers of meaning and metaphor. The concept speaks directly to social truths by simultaneously referencing reality, and acting as a substitute for it in this postmodern society of simulacrum.
Exhibition opening night: April 1 @7pm. All welcome.
Show open 11am-4pm Wednesdays to Sundays from April 2-11
@ Chrissie Cotter Gallery- Pidcock St, Camperdown.
