Interference Pattern: Rebecca Najdowski and Vivian Cooper Smith

Exhibition and Shows

15 Dec 2018 to 24 Feb 2019

What does it mean to make landscape photographs today?

Interference Pattern challenges the conventions of landscape photography by bringing together the work of Rebecca Najdowski and Vivian Cooper Smith to form new temporal images – landscapes in flux.

Their artwork is formed through studio and darkroom interventions with landscape imagery derived from the Wimmera region. Working from photographic film, Rebecca manipulates their structure – cutting, scratching, burning, tearing, stapling, folding – to give a sense of additive-erasure and draw attention to how photographs frame nature.

Vivian primarily uses re-photography, adding further disruption to this process through visual obstructions to the lens such as crystals and mirrors as well as introducing movement of the prints during long exposure. The results are landscape images largely untethered from any identifiable location but resonant with the site and performance of making, embracing the idea that photographic materials, camera, photographer and subject-matter are active and equal participants in the process.
