Australian National University
Drill Hall Gallery, Kingsley Street, ACT 5000

Anne Noble is included in the exhibition Antarctica, which presents the responses/experiences of seven artists visiting Antarctica. Each of the artist has undertaken a physical voyage to the continent and confronted the extremes of climate, environment, geography and isolation. These themes are also reflected in their work.
Noble's fascination with researching and photographing Antarctica has been alive since 2001. In her photographs of Antarctica she explores the cultural construction of place. Her images challenge the traditional representation of the Antarctic as heroic, picturesque and sublime, and draw attention to historical and contemporary politics of land and place.
