Sutton Projects is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Rudi Williams. This exhibitionEcho: beneath the cataract lies a stain is a study into patterns of performing, concealing and imaging desire, through the dual meaning of the word cataract. A meditation on the relationship between representation and form, these current works dissolve different historic practices of image making: hand-printed chromogenic prints, silver gelatin prints and Becquerel daguerreotypes with sculptural supports made from steel, glass and acrylic.
Rudi Williams’ exhibitions combine recollections of chance, facade and desire, experienced through settings of cultural congregation and spectatorship. Her photographs depict reflections and anomalies within continuities of history, viewing and display.
Rudi Williams was born in Milan, Italy in 1993. Based in Melbourne, she completed a Bachelor of Fine Art, Honours at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2015. Previous solo exhibitions include: Echo (2016), Last Picture Show (2015), Amnesia (2014), Unfixed(2014). Her work has been exhibited in the following institutions: Centre for Contemporary Photography, Monash Gallery of Art, The Substation and Tarrawarra Museum of Art.
