Aotearoa Art Fair 2023

Eliza Hutchison

02.03.2023 - 05.03.2023

Eliza Hutchison’s work experiments with materiality and abstract aesthetics in an exploration of our complex and psychological relationship to the photographic image. Placed firmly within our present cultural and historical contexts, she explores the idea of biography in which personal archive is both indexically abstracted with and enmeshed in the narrative of mass culture as an alternative to traditional self-portraiture.

Hutchison’s work uses the archive as a generative tool to investigate ideas of collective consciousness and personal histories. Her most recent works address the digital reception of imagery and the fluid formation of consciousness, amalgamating the personal and political on the same interface.

Eliza Hutchison was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and currently lives and works in Melbourne. Hutchison was educated at UNSW and RMIT Melbourne where she studied film, sculpture and photography. Hutchison’s recent exhibitions include The Chills, OIGÅLL PROJECTS, 2023; Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award, HOTA, 2022; MUMMUMMUMUMMUMMUMMUM, Haydens, 2022; Photo 2021, Victorian Parliament Commission; The National, curated by Isobel Parker Phillip, 2019; Image Reader, Centre of Contemporary Photography curated by Made Spencer-Castle, 2019; Balnaves Contemporary, Art Gallery of New South Wales, curated by Natasha Bullock, 2013; Melbourne Now, National Gallery of Victoria, 2013.
