Gabriel Tongue Nilsen Tactile: I preferred books with picturesOpening: Wednesday 4 October, 6-8pm Dates: 4 – 28 October 2017
“Tactile: I preferred books with pictures” explores how we look and relate to a photographic series. Selecting material from my photographic archive, I have re-purposed and positioned images to explore limitations and expectations of presenting a “singular” idea for a body of work. In doing so, I am investigating how we experience the act of looking, how we collect images and how we construct stories that ultimately reflect who we are.
Gabriel is a Melbourne based artist working with the photographic medium. His practice explores ideas about image consumption, distribution and reception. Gabriel uses his archive to investigate how we look and construct photographic images.
