Sugar

WHEN : 18th January - 16th February
WHERE : Queensland Centre of Photography

Coming of age within regional Queensland is an experience saturated with the images and identifiers of a male dominated culture; where sports, agriculture, and a mantra of “hard yakka” reign supreme. Combining documentary photography with site-specific performance, Sugar explores existing tensions within femininity, womanhood and familial identity. Performing within the artist’s grandmother’s home, and using tactile objects and materials, Katelyn-Jane Dunn’s images work to reconcile, reclaim and reflect upon a multidimensional femininity; ultimately asking; “what is it to be feminine in a regional context?”
