Join us to celebrate the launch of ‘Reproduction’ – the latest publication by
Janina Green. Reproduction, in all its multiple and variegated meanings –
whether of life or gender or images – has been at the heart of Green’s
practice for over 40 years.
Here, old and new works collide and converse – many of them reconfigured,
reimagined, rephotographed, slashed, atomised, painted over and revived –
to make for a playful and intoxicating cascade of imagery. The images are
accompanied by a personal and meditative text from Pippa Milne. The book
will be launched by Janina’s fellow VCA luminary, artist Sanja Pahoki.

Speakers

  • Sanja Pahoki (AU)

    Born Osijek, Croatia
    Lives and works Melbourne, Australia

    Sanja Pahoki uses photography, video, neon and text to explore observations from everyday life. Existential issues such as the nature of self, identity and the role of anxiety are recurring themes in her work. As the autobiographical is the initial inspiration for much of Sanja’s work, humour is often employed as a strategy to direct attention away from the personal to shared universal concerns. In 2018, Sanja was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy from Monash University. Pahoki’s artwork has been exhibited both nationally (ACCA @ Mirka at Tolarno Hotel, Heidi Museum of Modern Art, Centre for Contemporary Photography, Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces, Australian Centre for Photography in Sydney) and internationally (Brussels, Japan, Shanghai, Vienna, Berlin, Paris and Rotterdam). Pahoki is a Senior Lecturer in Photography at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne. She is represented by Sarah Scout Presents, Melbourne.

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.
