Bullethell, Explosions, Shrapnel

Lia Dewey Morgan

09 March 2019–30 March 2019

Bullethell, Explosions, Shrapnel takes crowd-sourced documentation and memories of 9/11 and explores the experience of the artist as an 8 year old, her internal narrative challenged for the first time. Dispersed papers – mirroring that which blew out of the buildings that morning – represent a loss of faith in the ability to make sense of an experience. Expanding beyond traditional photographic presentation, the work forms as an array of precarious heaps, the destabilised and crumpled images offering no singular solution to our collective dilemma. Pieces were generated in haphazard digital workspaces, using an iPhone, free trial software, and screenshots printed in consumer print shops.

Lia Dewey Morgan is the recipient of the KINGS Artist-Run Exhibition Prize awarded to a Monash graduating student. The prize is supported by The City of Melbourne.
