Sydney-based artist Laura Hunt contributed two photographic works to parataxis, Untitled 1 & 2 (2009), which were both printed on 100% cotton rag and exhibited unframed.
Laura works predominantly in photography, with which she explores ideas around the re-representation of already-mediated bodies through altering environment or imposing abstract parameters upon the image. Photographing television images, reappropriating visual characters, altering found images, and (re)mediating the real players in her life through different lenses/frames/filters/programmes/installations/experiences, Laura's images are at once a little too familiar, a little bit odd, and somehow disturbingly attractive.
A third work of Laura's - animation (2009), above - was published in the parataxis dossier in October 2009. Thank you, Laura!
