the unquiet landscapes of Rosemary Laing

Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA)

Curator: Vivienne Webb

About the Exhibition

The unquiet landscapes of Rosemary Laing represented a decade of photographic work by this Australian artist. This exhibition focused on Laing’s major series between 1995 and 2004 – greenwork, flight research, groundspeed and bulletproofglass – while also including other key works from this period. These series were representative of Laing’s artistic practice: they portrayed an artist consistently concerned with the intersection between identity and place. Laing’s work questions her own agency in representing the inherently contested space of the Australian land, recognising her position as a white Australian expounding post-colonial truths in a mode of representation that historically has been used to deny the Aboriginal history of Australia.
