Drawing from a collaborative dialogue with chemical biologist Dr Donna Whelan from La Trobe University’s Institute of Molecular Science, Melbourne-based artist Danica Chappell presents a new commission for PHOTO 2021 across two galleries and a public artwork on the building’s façade that incorporates laser microscopy with various traditional and contemporary image-making techniques.

Working with the malleable photograph, Chappell establishes a grounding based on shadows activated by the photogram. Light, shadow, form, colour and actions collide as ‘apparitions of delectation’ in response to material and processual conditions.

The exhibition forms part of La Trobe Art Institute’s Collaboratory series exploring collaboration in contemporary art practice.

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.
