RAY OF LIGHT
Exhibition by Robyn Stacey
14 December 2019 - 9 February 2020
Using the camera obscura, Sydney-based artist Robyn Stacey depicts South Australia as it has never been seen before. Translating from Latin to mean ‘dark room’ the camera obscura is an optical device of wonder, whereby the external world is trapped and inverted within the room.
This exhibition presents eight large-scale camera obscura photographs by Stacey. The photographs were created by the artist in 2016 when she turned well-known sites around Adelaide into camera obscuras – including Carrick Hill, Parliament House, artist Hans Heysen’s studio at The Cedars in Hahndorf, and the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).
