Perimeter Editions x Eliza Hutchison | Melbourne Book Launch
Perimeter is thrilled to present a book launch and signing for Australian photographer and artist Eliza Hutchison's long-awaited debut book Family Photos, published by Perimeter Editions. The event will take place at Murray White Room, Sargood Lane (off Exhibition Street, between Flinders Lane and Flinders Street), Melbourne, next Saturday June 3, 3pm-5pm. All are welcome!
In a career stretching back to the 1990s, Melbourne artist Eliza Hutchison – one of Australia's most unique photographic artists – has worked to slice, shred, fold, mirror and sculpt photographic images, materials and surfaces to both activate and complicate the photograph’s chain of command. The images that echo throughout her long-awaited debut book Family Photos – many of which came out of a residency at the Cité des Arts in Paris – both embrace and shatter their collective title. Prised from the swamp of Hutchison and her family’s wider history, present and semiconscious, they ricochet between intense intimacy and collective significance, applying photography’s indexical potential to the most ephemeral and malleable of moments. Here, she makes visible the turbulence of the psychological and the uncertainty and fallibility of memory.
