Curated by artists Kiron Robinson and Izabela Pluta, with support from Museum of Australian Photography (MAPh) Director Anouska Phizacklea, Built photography brings together 16 artists who explore photography as a physical construction. Arguably one of photography’s defining aspects is its flatness, its surface plane. So why are artists building out from this, constructing objects as photography?

Built photography proposes a conversation between photography’s material, its surface and form and especially its objectness, against which the flatness of the photographic plane is interrogated. Through processes of ‘inflation’, photographs disrupt the two-dimensional surface to complicate the spatial relationship between the content of an image and its physical form.

The exhibition features newly commissioned works as well as loaned works by artists who speak to an intrinsic photographic condition of surface and flatness while simultaneously resisting it.
