Nancy Wilson-Pajic : Blueprints
3 May - 9 June 2018
Since 1965, Nancy Wilson-Pajic has used narrative forms to make content-oriented artworks. She played an important role in the international artistic avant-garde of the 1970s with her text-sound installations and narrative works that often explored and questioned feminine role models, and commented twenty years later that “Working on female roles, using photography, posing for disguised self-portraits, and especially making works entirely in text and recorded sound, at the time I was doing it, did not conduct one directly to fame and fortune. It was rather looked upon as subversive and anti-artistic. This is hard to imagine today...”
Blueprints: the exhibition presents a series of works of varying formats chosen from the artist’s personal collection. Whilst experimental photography is only one of the very different forms explored by the artist throughout her career, this selection of works aims to provide an insight into her different photographic investigations ranging from formal documentation, to allegory, to the use of her own body in the making of her art.
