Photography lecturers' latest exhibition

Oct 19, 2011

TAFE SA Adelaide College of the Arts presents Full Spectrum, a collection of the latest work by three Adelaide-based photographic artists at the Light Square Gallery from 26 October to 10 November.

The exhibition is an investigation into representation, perception and abstraction by artists and TAFE SA Adelaide College of the Arts lecturers Gregory Ackland, Joe Felber and Will Nolan.

Designed to challenge the viewer’s perspective of photography today, each artist has experimented with a range of image-making processes in order to engage both the still and moving image as a conceptual and cultural object.

“All of us are interested in investigating how each of our divergent practices within the same discipline can hold together a fluent and cohesive conversation within a gallery setting,” explains Gregory Ackland. “We worked closely together to discuss and develop our theoretical understandings and to challenge our individual practices as we produce this new body of work.”

Gregory Ackland is Coordinator and Lecturer of Photography & Media Arts at the Adelaide College of the Arts. His latest works continue to investigate the dualistic, centering on beauty, connectedness and fragility.

Joe Felber’s work is a continuous wave evolving with an interdisciplinary practice including photography, drawing, printmaking, painting and audio recordings. Exhibiting his work across three continents over the past 15 years has informed Felber’s current practice, which has become a ‘performance’ of physical and discursive displacement.

Will Nolan is a graduate of UniSA’s School of Art, Architecture and Design, an emerging artist who was selected for the Helpmann Academy Graduate Exhibition in both 2008 and 2009 and he was featured as one of only two South Australian artists in the 2009 Off the Wall Melbourne Art Fair. In Full Spectrum, Nolan experiments with different approaches to photography including installation.
