Sleepwalker – Ursula Frederick

Ursula’s Sleepwalker is a series of images developed over several years of visiting the Jindabyne tip.

“I was struck by a veritable mountain of mattresses rising up out of the ground amidst rocks and trees. I began to explore, clambering over springs, and fabrics and fragments of wood, but because of its deteriorated state I could never really ascend its heights. Walking around and over the sprawl of mattresses I couldn’t help but see the intimate histories they carry. Each photograph is then a kind of portrait, a memento of dreams and the bodies they cushioned.

“The work as a whole is also a reflection on our society‚Äôs approach to consumption and waste and how our actions inevitably alter the landscapes we live in.”

The exhibition opens at the Huw Davies Gallery, Manuka Art Centre at 6pm on Thursday 17th January and runs to 3rd February.

The paper selected by Ursula for these prints was Canson Infinity Arches Velin Museum Rag.
