Aishah Kenton, from the series Take Second Exit, 2019, Archival Pigment Print

Gallery 2: Aishah Kenton

6 dec. 2019 — 25 jan. 2020

Living between Canberra, Australia and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Aishah Kenton’s photographic practice lies within the realm of the everyday seen through the medium of film. Capturing moments from her personal environment, Kenton’s images sit in limbo between the contemporary setting and the particular power of the photographic tradition and aesthetic – to reach for the elusive present and frame it within an ambiguous sense of the past.

Working deeply within the parameters of black and white film over the past three years, Kenton’s series of new work ‘Take Second Exit’ branches out into colour. An extension of the artist’s life, yet elsewhere, Kenton’s images embrace the immediacy of experience, offering insight into her relationship with the world. As an integral part of photography, the acts of looking, feeling and responding are at the centre of her practice.               

Artists showing in Gallery 2 are always local to Goulburn and the space is open for submission all year round.
