'Other Dream' by Lilli Waters at Modern Times

  • Modern Times 311 Smith Street Fitzroy, VIC, 3065 Australia (map)

Modern Times presents ‘Others Dream’, opening 20 June – a solo exhibition of photographic works by award-winning Melbourne-based artist Lilli Waters.

Large scale photographs in ‘Others Dream’ meld the female figure with the landscape in unsettling, otherworldly scenes. Naked female figures in poses of stillness and fluid movement inhabit primordial landscapes, from scarlet lakes to primitive scrub. These elements combine with Lilli’s deft use of light to create a narrative and drama that unfolds before the viewer. 

“In these photographs I wanted to communicate a sense that the figures belong and are even nourished by these potentially hostile surroundings. At dawn and dusk, the edge of slumber and first light, these figures awaken out of the darkness and live in the hours when others dream,” says Lilli.

Opening: 6-8pm, Thursday 20 June 2019

Exhibition Dates: 20 June - 30 June 2019

Pre-Sales Open: 10am, Tuesday 11 June
