    Liss Fenwick is an artist using photography, video, sound and material processes. They work with visual languages to explore speculative outcomes of failing human-centeredness and eurocentrism.

    Liss is from Larrakia Country in the Northern Territory, and work between here and Naarm (VIC).

    They acknowledge the First Nations sovereign custodians of the lands and waters they live and work on and honour their elders, culture and connection to country. This includes the Larrakia people (NT) and the Eastern Kulin nations (VIC). First Nations sovereignty was never ceded.

    Kyle Archie Knight is a Wiradjuri queer photographic artist. His series Cruising for a Bruising (2022-ongoing) is a camp love letter to the Australian Suburbs. Growing up queer in outer-metropolitan Naarm (Melbourne), Knight found themselves drawn to explore the streets of their family neighbourhood. Their search for moments that capture the essence of suburbia results in a celebration of the surreal and the mundane, the humorous and the humdrum. Knight reconnects with past memories of estrangement, finding humour and delight in what was once alienating and suffocating.

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.
