Lit from the Top: Sculpture through Photography

Curated by Laura Lantieri and Sarah Wall

Through the work of seven local and international artists, Lit from the Top considers the ways in which sculpture and photography intersect in contemporary art practice. From a range of perspectives, the artists approach the photograph as site for the creation of sculptural compositions, rather than simply a method and means for their documentation. With a particular emphasis on material, form, surface, space and the image-making process, collectively their works question medium specificity and trace the ambivalent relationships between object and image, the original and the copy.

Taking its title from Sol LeWitt's serial photographic study, A Sphere Lit From the Top, Four Sides, and Their Combinations, the exhibition explores the interplay between photography and sculpture, image- and object-making, and how these artists mediate and reimagine each medium through the prism of the other – from sculptures re-presented as photographs, to photographs rendered as sculpture.

Supported by

The Australian Artists' Grant is a NAVA initiative, made possible through the generous sponsorship of Mrs Janet Holmes à Court and the support of the Visual Arts Board, Australia Council for the Arts.
