Gail Kenning & Sue Pedley: Moving

Being in a place that is unfamiliar often causes a heightened sense of looking and being. How do we come to understand an unfamiliar place and reconcile often simultaneously contrasting viewpoints? In an attempt to understand an unfamiliar place we bring together information gathered from books, films, articles, conversations, with our experiences of ‘being there’, interacting with people and place, moving through spaces and experiencing a culture.

Gail Kenning and Sue Pedley present a series of photocollages, animations and monoprints developed from a project carried out during a residency at the Redgate Studio in Beijing, December 2011. The project examined how individuals come to understand or perceive spaces and places that are unfamiliar and culturally, historically and socially different to their own experiences. The starting points for the work are the shared experience and documentation of two very different journeys in Beijing.
Presented by Peloton at Sydney College of the Arts, Balmain Rd, Rozelle, NSW, Australia.
Exhibition runs from 1st March - 30th March, opening reception 6-8pm 9th March
