In 2020, the realities of the world have become a pageant of messages condensed into screens, where media casts only a shadow of ‘the truth’. Christopher Day’s Inimical Cave observes the similarities between Plato’s Cave concept and humanity’s recent confinements in our own, homey, quarantine grottos.

Scenes of swamps, pizza, cultivated fields, dwellings, people, ducks, antique furniture, DVD players and curtained interiors act as humorous allegorical projections of the scenes of recent life, while attempting to illuminate how our perception of the world can become distorted by the vomitous creations layered by the media.

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.
