UNKNOWN PLEASURES – OPENS SATURDAY – ONE NIGHT ONLY

FEATURING WORK BY PHOTOGRAPHER HANNAH ROCHE

CURATED BY DAN ELBORNE

 

 

Imagination, to the French theorist Antonie Artaud, was reality. The objects we define as being ‘real’ are, more often than not, the result of a general, cultural consensus. Accordingly, this ‘harmony of reason’ has partitioned the world around us into the material and the immaterial, thereby reducing the beauty and ecstasy inherent in dreams, thoughts and delusions into mere abstractions without any real, quantifiable capacity to affect. Issuing from this, the ‘Unknown Pleasures’ exhibition hopes to re-represent images of everyday life within the milieu of reverie and the imagination.

“Unknown Pleasures”, taken from Joy Division’s seminal album of the same name, is inspired, in part, by European Impressionism and Surrealism.

The work of Brisbane photographer Hannah Roche, ‘Unknown Pleasures’ features photographs captured while abroad in France. Familiar yet disquieting, ‘Unknown Pleasures’ implores the viewer to establish meaning in the hiddenness of the everyday world.
