Glen Skien, Foto-Metafisica: The Archive as Object-Poem

7th - 31st August

Onespace Gallery

Onespace Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition, Foto-Metafisica: The Archive as Object-Poem, by Glen Skien.

Skien is a Brisbane-based artist who trained as a printmaker in Townsville. In 2018 he was the recipient of the State Library of Victoria Creative Fellowship. His residency adopted a poetic gaze towards the library’s archive of unnamed and unidentified photographic images.

Describing his contribution to the State Library of Victoria Creative Fellowship, Skienn says “I have produced a series of small hand-held bound books that feature the photographic etchings of unnamed figures from the photographic archive of the Library. Titled foto-metafisica the intention has always been to create a series of book-objects that withhold the same intrigue and unknown ‘aboutness’ as the images themselves”.

Having over 35 years of experience in the visual arts sector, Skien has exhibited widely in Australia and his work is held in both private and public collections across Australia and Japan.
