Rosemary Laing, where to from here #1, 2019. Archival pigment print, edition of 8, dimensions variable. Courtesy: the artist and Tolarno Galleries, Melbourne.

 

Rosemary Laing’s new photographic series, skyground (2019) was undertaken in Aotearoa/New Zealand’s Southern Alps/Kā Tiritiri o te Moana, during the unseasonal and unprecedented storms of late spring, 2018. Thematically, skyground is most closely aligned with the simulated ether of Laing’s series weather (2006), which conjures the effects of late capitalism as an atmospheric nightmare — a condition of our own making and of which we have lost control.

While skyground recalls weather’s anthropogenic concerns, it also situates the viewer squarely within the storm conditions, recasting their previous role as bystander to one now of central protagonist.”

Extract from Tanya Peterson’s Grey Speed, catalogue essay, Rosemary Laing skyground, Melbourne. Tolarno Galleries, 2019.

 

Exhibition opens: 2–4pm Saturday 13 July 2019
