Murray Fredericks: Witness
Events Invermay, Launceston, Tasmania
31 Mar 2023 to 21 May 2023 Once Only Event
Exclusively and for the first time in Tasmania, QVMAG is proud to showcase the works of multi-award-winning photo media artist Murray Fredericks.
Witness brings together a selection of defining large-scale images drawn from Fredericks’ personal collection. Works span his acclaimed Salt, Icesheet and Hector series, showcasing the majestic and awe-inspiring environs of Lake Eyre, Greenland and the Tiwi Islands.
Fredericks describes his practice as one being derived from a perspective that views culture as something that cannot be wholly accounted for through social constructs.
‘In the end, what we see are not really places at all. We’re only looking at space. And whatever meaning these so-called places might have is inserted into them by the way the space is handled. Hopefully, the spaces in these images will open up to the viewers another space, a greater space, where they can insert their own meanings into the photographic moment.’
This exhibition is exclusively on display in Tasmania at QVMAG.
