David Lawrey + Jaki Middleton
Exhibition & Residency:
David Lawrey & Jaki Middleton’s collaborative practice draws on popular visual culture, art history and cinematic traditions to create works that engage the viewer via optical phenomena, juxtaposition and repetition. Incorporating sculpture, photography, pre-cinematic optical devices and museum inspired displays, their works appropriate iconic snippets of film and video art; re-staging these fragments in new visual contexts in order to observe, break-down and reconfigure familiar narratives.
David Lawrey & Jaki Middleton have been working collaboratively since 2005 and are based in Sydney, Australia. Recent exhibitions include Abandon Normal Devices at FACT, Liverpool, UK and New Acquisitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.
