DARK MATTERS: SELECTED PHOTOGRAPHS BY JANINA GREEN

FITZROY, 1989

© Janina Green, Fitzroy, 1989

CURATED BY NAOMI CASS AND PIPPA MILNE, CENTRE FOR CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY

“Photographic theorist, Ariella Azoulay speaks of photography as an event. For Janina Green, such events (rather than photographs of events) have lent structure to her life. From her vast oeuvre, this selection of images is representative of aspects of Green’s eclectic and experimental practice over a 30-year period as she made observations about domesticity, motherhood, reading, teaching, sexual politics, theory and psychology.

To accompany the exhibition, Green has produced a candid set of notes, both technical and personal, which offer an unusual level of insight into the work and give context to the artist and her environment as she made the works.”

PETER MILNE: ‘THE ODDFELLOW’S DAUGHTER’

In association with the 2015 Melbourne International Comedy Festival
Produced by Emma Louise Pursey

Oddfellows

The Oddfellow’s Daughter features a scintillating cast of Australian comedy figures including Judith Lucy, Wil Anderson, John Safran, Sammy J, Greg Fleet, Denise Scott, Alan Brough, Rod Quantock, Dave Thornton and Celia Paquola in a series of ‘film-stills’ from a movie that does not actually exist.

The (imaginary) movie, The Oddfellow’s Daughter is a contemporary melodrama in which the main character, Rebekah Dreilink, (a Berlin-based photo-journalist) uncovers disturbing information about her long-lost father while sorting out her mother’s estate. Rebekah enlists the help of a young university professor as her search for clues about the apparently faked death of her war-hero father draws her into a dangerous underworld of secret societies and duplicitous politics. Were it actually to be produced, the movie of The Oddfellow’s Daughter would be an overwrought, ‘B Grade’ conspiracy-theory thriller. These photographs give us a glimpse of what might have been.

ANNOUNCING M.33’S FIRST eBOOK – KEVIN CHIN: ORIGINAL YELLOW

 

kevinchin

Available now for free download on Mac and Ipads: https://itunes.apple.com/au/book/original-yellow/id973659898?mt=11

What does it take to feel you belong? Kevin Chin, a Chinese-Malaysian migrant, recounts his experience moving from his adopted hometown of Melbourne to Tokyo, and his attempts to fit in. Half diaristic and half photographic, ‘Original Yellow’ provides a humorous insight into cultural belonging, and ultimately questions how we find our place in the world.

 


 

PETER MILNE: ‘JUVENILIA’

Curated by Helen Frajman & Linsey Gosper

Juvenilia
© Peter Milne, from A Day in the Life of Rowland S Howard, 1977

 ‘Juvenilia brings together for the first time 100 astonishing photographs of friends and family taken by renowned Victorian artist Peter Milne when he was a very young man. Warm, intimate, surprising and already displaying the great compositional skills, originality and humour for which Milne is known, these images offer an unprecedented peep into mid1970s to mid 1980s Melbourne and a milieu of people who would go on to play pivotal roles in Melbourne’s burgeoning cultural scene.’

February 27 – March 28, 2015
Opening night – Friday February 27, 6 – 9pm

To be opened by Bruce Milne. Bruce Milne is Peter’s older brother. Peter documents with photography, Bruce Milne documents with recordings. Give Peter a hard time and Bruce will make you regret it.

PERFECT STRANGER

JANINA GREEN

Test strip on Kentmere Art Parchment paper from a negative taken at McKenzie Falls , Grampians , 2000

Travel gives us the promise of redefining ourselves, of shedding our identities and becoming something new and strange. It also holds the allure of the different, the unknown and perhaps slightly dangerous, the exotic locale, the exotic other, nature in its raw state. For previous generations this fantasy of travel was fed by our contact with the pictured image reproduced in books and magazines and encountered in cinema. This collection of images brings together musings on travel with my interest in the myriad of photographic and reproduction processes.’Perfect Stranger’ is a photographic dream: an assemblage of images, bound either by texture or location, seen through screens of differing photographic and printing processes

MOMENTS OF MY LIFE

1976 Near Ballarat Vic.,  2013

 

“Small events are often remembered because we have a photograph that we love and have therefore kept, and it is the photograph that becomes the abiding memory. At other times it is the story that plays a bigger role. This exhibition explores this connection and the accompanying text is as important as the image, even when it somewhat misrepresents it.”

PERSONAL HYGIENE

PETER MILNE

Personal Hygiene, Part Three: Health Food of the Nation, 2012 (detail)

This project is a meticulously detailed visual reconstruction of the repressed memories that came flooding back to me a couple of years ago as I awoke from major abdominal surgery and started to read a brochure on bowel function supplied by the hospital.

Actually, that is a lie. When I awoke from surgery and read the brochure, I had no dramatic memory flashes or important insights, just the sad realization that I was wounded and vulnerable. Personal Hygiene is the series of visual revelations that should have come to me to provide comfort at this time of need. It didn’t happen that way, so I had to invent these memories for myself.

Peter Milne, 2013

IKEA

JANINA GREEN

 

 

from IKEA, 2012

Silver gelatin photograph on fibre based paper tinted with Pelikan Lasurefabre photo dyes,  85 X 70cm

“My photographs are always about the past. The Barthesian slogan, ‘This has been’, is for me, ‘I was there’. This series of images of a vase from Ikea consists of silver gelatin prints tinted in different coloured photographic dyes; photographs of a simple mass produced vase – its form the familiar vessel which so dominates Art History.

‘Ikea’ for me is symbolic of the useful homely object and of the ideal home. The vase from Ikea no longer exists. The picture of that vase stands in for the vase that once  existed. The photograph can be seen now – at this moment. It will continue to exist in the future. Its representation crosses time barriers. “

Chromogenic Print, 16.5 X 24.5 cm

‘In the 1970s most art photography was in black and white and there was a view among critics and curators that colour photography was only suitable for advertising or amateur snapshots. I was part of a generation of young photographers who embraced colour photography for the very qualities that the critics rejected.’

BE HOME BEFORE DARK

JANINA GREEN

From Be Home Before Dark, 2011
Unique hand coloured gelatin silver photograph, 100 x 150cm

“I frequently return to my hometown in Gippsland. The aging, industrial and noisy powerhouses, coalmines and shopping plazas remind me of the poverty of the labourer lives. I have always loved the pastoral splendour of the farms billabongs and creeks, the still quiet and remote houses away from our cobbled together township with its make – do structures, gardens and yards. On my visits now I seek to capture the visual pleasure of those panoramic vistas in my memory. But I return with landscape images that are bleak, threatening and disturbing. They are always darker than I expect.”
