Opening next week at ARC ONE Gallery will be a new series of works by ANNE ZAHALKA titled Threshold. Naomi Cass, Director of the Centre for Contemporary Photography (Melbourne) has written the catalogue essay:
“In this series of works photographed in Morocco, Anne Zahalka represents many thresholds—doorways, arches, a crossroad, a highway and a crumbling film set. Like Janus [god of thresholds] who embodied the value of looking both forward and backward, Zahalka invokes the slippery transition between documentary and staged photography, between ‘participant observer’ and tourist."
We are looking forward to seeing the works installed.
