Rooms found only in the home is an exhibition developed out of holdings of Shannon’s works in the Dunedin Public Art Gallery collection and the artist’s personal archive. The exhibition explores the intersecting spheres of her practice; considering her different conceptual interests and dual focus on photography and video.
Many of Shannon’s works hinge on relationships – the objects and evidence of personal interactions enacted through the course of everyday life. As she focuses attention on her family life, daily observations, and the process of art-making, a sense of past and present becomes important.
A Dunedin Public Art Gallery touring exhibition.
