Glenn Sloggett - Abandon
Exhibition: 3 July to 3 August, 2002
Glenn Sloggett's images of everyday suburban spaces leave the viewer both laughing and worried at the same time. His dark and disquieting images explore the neglected, the derelict and the out of date.
Despite their apparent darkness, Sloggett's images also describe hope and humour in the face of a bleak reality. In the dumped garbage, forlorn graveyards and empty fairgrounds we see the leftovers of our dreams.
This is Glenn Sloggett's first show at Stills Gallery. His works have been featured in exhibitions including Photographica Australis at ARCO 2002 Madrid, curated by Alasdair Foster, Director of the Australian Centre for Photography and in New Australiana an Australian Centre for Photography touring exhibition. He was winner of the inaugural John and Margaret Baker Memorial Fellowship for an emerging photographer, Albury Regional Art Gallery 2001.
