Alice Duncan (NZ/AU)

Born 1991, Auckland, Aotearoa (NZ)
Lives and works Naarm (Melbourne), Australia

Alice Duncan’s takes a multifaceted approach to her practice – mediating between science, archaeology and photography to explore the ways in which these disciplines describe the world.

Her recent work utilises an expanded photographic practice to excavate the histories and possible narratives that surround specific sites and landscapes. Moving between digital, analogue and sculptural photographic practices, Alice draws parallels between photography and geology to address the past within the present Australian landscape. Her practice explores the deep past as a living heritage and recognizes the possibilities and responsibilities it generates.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
