Opening 24 May, 6-8pm
Friday 24 May to Sunday 16 June
A Loved One Sleeping is an exhibition of photographic works by Yvette Hamilton.
Inspired by Victorian-era mourning portraiture, A Loved One Sleeping memorializes the creative space that was the QueenSt Studios/Frasers Artist Studio Residencies and which was housed in a Chippendale warehouse space, offered to artists as part of the Frasers Central Park development. Hamilton was amongst the last group of artists to inhabit the studios before they were handed back to the developers and her work responds to the inherent tension of the site as it teetered on the edge of its demise. The photographic and video works taken during and after her residency explore presence and absence.
