This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition 'Nicholas Aloisio-Shearer: Fragile Fantasy' at UNSW Galleries 15 March – 1 June 2019.
'Fragile Fantasy' brings together a collection of Aloisio-Shearer’s photographs combining digital and analogue processes. They feature characters and objects that have been hacked from games and reconstructed in commercial 3D modelling software. The images are then re-photographed and printed in the darkroom on discontinued black and white paper. They feature everyday social situations, including characters eating together, or playing musical instruments, as well as erotic scenarios and non-descript landscapes.
