Works from two photographic series by Sydney based artist Rosemary Laing are presented in this exhibition, in association with ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2015, a Melbourne-wide Festival of art exhibitions, forums and talks seeking to harness the creative power of the Arts to inform, engage and inspire action on climate change.

Laing’s powerful images elucidate this theme in ways that are layered and sometimes surprising. Linking the two series is the motif of paper. In The Weather 2006, a figure is blown around midst shreds of torn environmental texts, a whirl of bluster, false starts and broken promises. In The Paper (2013), sheets of daily newspaper cover a forest floor like a pale carpet or shroud. The quiet, elegiac mood of the scene paradoxically calls us to action.
