LOADED brings together three Melbourne artists from quite distinct generations – each with a reputation for creating visually engaging photographs: Jane Burton, Christopher Köller and Darren Sylvester.
All three are known for making work which is somewhat enigmatic or elusive and which while representational in nature, is nevertheless open to many readings and multiple narratives. Work that is in fact loaded. For each of the artists the surface appearance of their photographs is paramount. It is here where both the pleasure and the mystery reside. While the images are highly seductive, they are by no means superficial; each artist considers contemporary concerns and ideas – albeit in quite individual ways.
LOADED is part of the 2005 Gallery 101 Exhibition Calendar and is presented in collaboration with guest curator Helen Frajman.
