The Light Gallery exhibitions
An exhibition by Lee Salomone
South Australian artist Lee Salomone will be exhibiting witness for the first time in Australia at the Light Gallery this June/July. witness is a series of twenty one photographic images that are part documentary and part travelogue exploring our place in space and the reappropriation of a modern castoff.
Of the exhibition, Salomone says, “witness continues my exploration of creating beauty with found & discarded objects”.
The series makes use of a CD salvaged from a broken printer as a photographic prop. The cd reflects available light and functions as a mechanism for capturing the world differently. The photographs depict scenes of tourism, from the everyday to the monumental, and draw upon the 18th century notion of the Grand Tour, where people travelled to extend their knowledge of art, architecture, history and life.
The Light Gallery is excited to be hosting the exhibition. Salomone takes an intuitive approach to photography, gently engaging with his impact on the world and capturing the influence of the surrounding environment on himself.
The series was first exhibited at Atelier Terra, Berlin, in 2013, and this will be the first time it is exhibited in Australia. The images are the result of an intense two year period of work and travel in Germany and Australia.
