Valerie Sparks


Level 1, 65 Murray St, Hobart TAS

18 October- 9 November, 2019

Valerie Sparks questions the digital limits of photography, merging art and design as she incorporates photomedia into large-scale immersive environments, enticing the viewer with idealised, unobtainable landscapes depicting flora, fauna and taxidermied animals. This exhibition brings together key works that chart the history of Sparks’ practice; from her ‘Le Vol’ and ‘Prospero’s Island’ series to her reinterpretations of 18th century French scenic wallpapers, frescoes and contemporary three-dimensional light-based installations. Each work deals with concerns over the destruction of landscape, post-colonialism and globalisation.
