Hold still: the photographic performance -  - Sydney - NSW
Hold still deconstructs the gestures we habitually adopt while looking into a lens and proposes that the instant of capture is itself a performance. Attentive to the way the camera serves as a silent choreographer – dictating our movements – the exhibition presents incisive commentary about the way photography pervades contemporary life. Drawn from the Art Gallery of NSW’s collection, it features artists who exploit and exaggerate the posture (or imposture) of the portrait sitter. The exhibition includes works by Taryn Simon, Darren Sylvester, Anne Ferran, Cherine Fahd, Max Dupain and Harold Cazneaux. These pieces appear alongside those produced by commercial photographers in the late 19th century.
