In conjunction with the Perth Winter Arts Festival 2016, the Perth Centre for Photography is very pleased and excited to welcome two Australian artists: Mike Gray and Kristian Laemmle-Ruff.

Corrupt, Mike Gray (WA)

Mike Gray is an award-winning photographic artist from Perth, Western Australia.

Corrupt is a series of digital photographs that have been corrupted by randomly inserting personal confessions, computer code, and Australian popular culture references into the image when opened in a text-based code editor. When the digital files are subsequently re-opened as images the corruption manifests itself in unpredictable ways.

There is an element of chance in this process that is similar to the entropy found in natural systems. In some respects, the images bring the abject (code) to the same level as the sublime (nature), the grotesque next to the romantic. This could be seen as the two extremes of the nature / culture axis meeting each other.

Mind The Gap, Kristian Laemmle-Ruff (Vic)

Mind the Gap is a somewhat dark and politically charged meditation on the gap between Australian cultures. It is not asking us to close the gap, to homogenise or assimilate; rather it asks us to acknowledge the gap, nurture the gap, celebrate the diversity rather than deny its existence. It encourages us to question and hold ourselves accountable for our actions as global citizens.

The work aims to highlight colonial mannerisms and differences between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal ways of understanding and valuing land. Mind the Gap encourages us to imagine a future with deeper reconciliation and stronger acknowledgment of our true history rather than having our heads in the sand.

Opening night: Thursday July 21, 6.30pm

Exhibition continues Friday July 22 - August 20, 2016
