A photographic work
Joanna Callaghan

Elastic residence
16 June – 3 July 2005

‘I do not want to found anything on the incomprehensible. I want to know whether I can live with what I know and with that alone’. Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus

A female figure appears alone within a domestic space. Her action and inaction frozen, isolated, repeated. Her surroundings empty and fill of contents. She appears at times as one woman, at others as another; naked, distant, faceless.

EMPTY explores notions of the feminine self. Boundaries of inner and outer space reduce, expand and contract. Within this movement, some thing is glimpsed. A woman? A soul?

Presented as a slide projection, EMPTY takes the form of a dialogue between model and maker, viewer and author, composition and construction. The work continues Callaghan’s fascination with isolating and manipulating pictorial layers in complex, elegant and evocative arrangements.
