Peta Clancy (Bangerang), Undercurrent, 2018-2019, inkjet pigment print, 130 x 92cm.

Create your own surprising and engaging layered photographs by exploring the Yarra River and surrounds.

In this workshop Peta will discuss and share her methods for developing her photographic works for the exhibition Undercurrent which involved using overlaying and cutting techniques to create surprising images of the landscape and the environment around her.

The process of creating the images will involve working with large scale photographic prints of the landscape, taping these prints to a custom-built frame and placing them within the environment. The participants will then cut into these prints to reveal the scene behind and photograph the cut prints to create their own unique layered views of the environment around them. Participants will use a digital SLR camera to photograph their creations. The photographs will be edited and printed and each participant will take home their cut and layered photograph depicting the environment around the Yarra River and Federation Square.

Peta Clancy is a descendant of the Bangerang people from south-eastern Australia. Her photographs explore notions of the real and the perceived, and seek to challenge the viewer to focus on what might never have been noticed. She was awarded the 2018 Fostering Koorie Art and Culture residency from the Koorie Heritage Trust, to research massacre sites on Dja Dja Wurrung and Bangerang Country. Her current work investigates these hidden histories in the landscape. Clancy lectures in the Fine Art Department at Monash Art, Design & Architecture, Monash University, Melbourne.
