Susan Fereday / Infinite Image

Centre for Contemporary Photography
404 George Street Fitzroy VIC 3065
Exhibition Opening: Thursday 7 February 2013, 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: 8 February – 24 March 2013

Photography Studies College and The PrintShop@PSC are proud supporters.

Susan Fereday’s work was proudly printed by The PrintShop@PSC using our Fine Art Print services.

Infinite Image revisits two earlier bodies of Susan Fereday’s work: The Object of Photography (1994) and Untitled Found Objects (1993) in the context of her new series of photographs Infinite Image (2012), which explores the infinite malleability of the digital image.

For many years, Fereday has re-photographed small details of magazine advertisements to resemble classic ‘UFO photos’, which she presents alongside suspended glass and metal plates that also mimic UFO forms. Her arrangements of suspended mirrors and plates, along with the shadows and refracted shapes they cast onto the gallery walls, evoke the displacement of desire through the allure of commodity fetishism. They ‘earth’ the photographic imagery, sharing their correlation of shape, and re-presenting their banal materiality as spectacle.



Susan Fereday’s exhibition All Seeing opens at Sarah Scout Gallery, Melbourne, on Saturday 9 February, 3-5pm.
