Antarctica, a place in the wilderness
A photographic exhibition of community and connection to place by Judy Parrott from an Australian Antarctic Division Arts Fellowship.
Having spent several months on an Australian Antarctic Division Arts Fellowship, Brisbane artist Judy Parrott's exhibition of photographic works Antarctica - A Place in the Wilderness presents a rare and exhilarating glimpse of life on Australia's most remote research stations.
In 2005, after a crash course in knot tying, navigation, radio communication and rescue methods, Parrott travelled to the Antarctic on board the Aurora Australis. She documented her time in Australia's three Antarctic stations where she was inspired by the work, environment and community life of people employed there. The result of the journey is a series of dramatic photographs of this extreme environment that capture the exhilarating experience of being surrounded by ice.
In addition to stunning black and white photography, the exhibition includes found objects (for which Parrott was granted a permit to collect), materials provided by the Australian Antarctic Division and a collaged audio recording of ambient sounds, such as the cracking of ice during the boat voyage and the slicing of bitter winds.
