White Wall / Black Box

Lucie McIntosh
Tom Ames

27 November 2015–18 December 2015

White Wall / Black Box is collaborative project between artists Tom Ames and Lucie McIntosh, considering the advent of the photograph within the gallery or exhibition space. Both Ames’ and McIntosh’s independent practices work across disciplines and are primarily concerned with reframing the nature photography today.White Wall / Black Box combines the artists understanding of photography and expands on their knowledge of practice, engaging with contemporary modes of making and viewing photography. Working together, Ames and McIntosh ask; how might our understanding of photography as being symbolic of reality affect what we see on the surface of the print? By exploring alternative image making processes as well as acknowledging the photograph as an object within itself, this project will link the photographs potentiality beyond the pictorial and its material existence within the exhibition space. This exhibition is supported by RMIT Link Arts & Culture.

See all projects by:

  • Lucie McIntosh is a visual artist working in print media and spatial practice. Her work reflects upon the nature of seeing by building relationships between viewer, object and space. By meditating on the 'object-hood' and the materiality of the photograph, Lucie's work reveals it's actuality to the viewer through their own subjective consciousness. Lucie completed a BFA at RMIT University in 2014 and is currently based in Melbourne, Australia.
  • Tom Ames is an emerging artist who lives and works in Melbourne. His recent practice has explored alternate ways of engaging with photographic processes and painting. Investigating the emotive potential of destructive actions that in turn afford new outcomes.
