Ethereal Selves by Meanjin/Brisbane-based artist Emma Gardner is an installation of suspended self-portraits.
Gardner’s work is grounded in Western esoteric practices, such as Contemporary Occultism, which emphasise human connections to natural elements and rhythms. She looks to the stars for divination and incorporates ritualistic habits that promote healing into her creative process. In her self-portraits, Gardner uses analogue photography yet moves beyond surface-level and representational imagery. Her works capture moments of surrender and states of vulnerability.
