Bondi Pavilion Gallery, Sydney, is hosting an exhibition of photographic prints by Katrina Lezaic, entitled Home Video, on display till November 19, 2017.
With her works as presented in this exhibition, Katrina Lezaic, in part, salutes absence, missing and grief. A way to get over the pain of loss by wearing out the same story through sheer repetition: a video on loop. A kind of exorcism! An intimacy with absence. But as well, it offers a new way of representing presences or spirits. It is not that the figures have been removed but the symbols for the figures are there to say what the figures said – a kind of direct communion between the artist and the viewer, a touchstone of her reverence and devotion. Perhaps too, it is a distilling of moments filled with possibility, moments heard about but never directly experienced, a documenting of those moments, a personal response to the joy that was missed, a way to make it exist.
