In Ephemeral Memory Jeremy Blincoe is encouraging us to consider our position on indigenous issues facing Australians today. Using a combination of on-location and studio photography, his striking images establish a dialogue between the subject and natural environment. Yet while Blincoe’s images are provocative, there is deliberate ambiguity in his work. Subjects are floating in mid-air or clinging to elements of the landscape, inviting the viewer to question whether they are oppressed or liberated; tethered or unbound. This exhibition highlights the struggle of indigenous people to retain their ancient culture and traditions, while forging a new identity in modern day Australia.
