Two Australian artists talk about their incredible exhibitions in-person at Paddington’s Reservoir Gardens.  

In Patricia’s room, photographer Jennifer explores what happens to our sense of self when we lose our memory.   She will talk about making this series of work and how her work as an art therapist informs her arts practice.  

Fabian compiled Intimate perspectives on North Korea over two years, making it the most extensive survey of the country by an independent photographer.  He will talk us through the process of making such long-form documentary work and give insights into this series. 

 

 

About the artists

Jennifer Blau is a photographic artist interested in the emotional landscape and therapeutic possibilities of photography. She explores story and identity in people who may be misunderstood, marginalised, or experiencing challenges in life. She seeks to both reveal our shared humanity and encourage acceptance and compassion. Her work as an art therapist powerfully informs her interest in visual storytelling about subjects people deeply value.   

With a Master of Documentary Photography, her work has been in various prizes, including Head On and Moran Photographic Portrait Prizes. She co-exhibited Acknowledged: Sydney's Homeless at the State Library of NSW in 2013 and has held several exhibitions in Head On Photo Festival in recent years.  She is the author of The 50 Book: Women Celebrate Life. Her book Patricia's Room was awarded Momento Pro’s 'Best of 2020 Photobooks'.  

Fabian Muir is an Australian photographer based in Sydney. Before COVID-19 restrictions, his focus has been on societies living outside of the western political spectrum and norms. His research has taken him to North Korea, China, Iran, and all the former Soviet Union countries while examining the legacy of the USSR, including the contested breakaway territories of Abkhazia, Nagorno Karabakh and Transnistria.    

He has exhibited worldwide and been featured extensively in international media.  He is an Eddie Adams Workshop alumnus and represented by Michael Reid Gallery in Berlin and Sydney.
