As artists, academics and curators, Izabela Pluta and Kiron Robinson work across photography, sculpture, installation and video. Both artists bring an experimental methodology to their practice – whether that be through scanning, layering, cropping, altering or rephotographing – preferring to work in a controlled studio environment to bring new meaning to existing photographs.

In Hollow, both Pluta and Robinson explore their own and public archives which are then decontextualised and recontextualised to bring past ideas into a contemporary context. For the curators of Built photographyHollow playfully capsizes the idea of being built and examines the emptiness that can lie underneath the surface of a photograph.

In 2023/2024, the Museum of Australian Photography acquired works by Izabela Pluta and Kiron Robinson, which comprise this exhibition.
