Titled Body Remembers, Tracey Moffatt’s series of ten sepia-toned black and white photographs was met with critical and popular acclaim when first shown at the Venice Biennale in 2017.
The series’ protagonist is a maid, the artist herself, who is stranded on a colonial property. Moffatt describes the series as ‘a play with time, backwards and forwards of the past and present’. This display marks the series’ first Australian presentation.
First shown at the Venice Biennale 2017 as part of ‘My Horizon’ curated by Natalie King and commissioned by the Australia Council for the Arts. Collection of Neil Balnaves AO, Courtesy of the artist and Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery.
