Games of Consequence
Photographs by Polixeni Papapetrou
Australian photographer Polixeni Papapetrou’s exhibition, Games of Consequence, is opening at Foley Gallery. Her series, Haunted Country, featured in Aperture magazine (Issue 184, Fall 2006) and in Aperture’s limited-edition prints program, presents staged images of lost children in her country’s bush inspired by her own childhood experience of being lost in the woods on a summer school holiday. In Games of Consequences, Papapetrou continues this trajectory, considering the landscape as a medium in which she can explore ideas about the contemporary social landscape of childhood.
