Be sure to check out Australian artist Polixeni Papapetrou‘s latest exhibition at Foley Gallery. “Polixeni Papapetrou: Games of Consequence” will open on September 4th (a busy night for Aperture artists!) as does Aperture Gallery’s Invasion 68 Prague, photographs by Josef Koudelka, so be sure to catch both. Read the press release here, to learn more about exhibition and the artist’s work and her use of the Australian landscape and adolescent models to explore the concept of youth and the “wonderfully heterogeneous dimensions of childhood, where the fear and danger mix with the angelic.” Aperture magazine readers will recall that we featured the work of Papapetrou in Issue 184, Fall 2006, specifically, her series Haunted Country. “I tried to capture feelings about Australia, but also about children and their eternal vulnerability in both the natural and social orders,” states the artist. This is the second solo exhibition of Polixeni Papeptrou’s photography at Foley Gallery. Her first exhibition included work from the Haunted Country series.
Aperture is pleased to have a work from Polixeni Papapetrou still available in our limited-edition
photographs program from the Haunted Country series. Prints can be viewed in our limited-edition room, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
