Starting at the building’s façade, Danica Chappell and Donna Whelan will join La Trobe Art Institute senior curator Kent Wilson in a conversational tour of the exhibition.


In 2019 Chappell and Whelan embarked on a year-long exchange of imagery and ideas. Chappell’s resulting exhibition is presented across two galleries and on the building’s façade, where the newly commissioned public artwork Far from the eye: Dark field incorporates laser microscopy with various traditional and contemporary image-making techniques.


Light, shadow, form, colour and actions collide in what Chappell describes as ‘apparitions of delectation’ in response to photographic materials and processes.


Far from the eye: Dark field presents in macro, the abstracted truths of photography while acknowledging the action of looking down a microscope to see an object at its nanoparticle scale.

Access: Wheelchair access, accessible toilets
