James Tylor: Turrangka...In the Shadows opening at Goulburn Regional Gallery - March 15

Multi-disciplinary artist James Tylor combines historical and contemporary photographic processes to explore his Nunga (Kaurna Miyurna), Māori (Te Arawa) and European (English, Scottish, Irish, Dutch and Norwegian) ancestry.

James Tylor Turrangka…in the shadows  is a UNSW Galleries exhibition curated by Leigh Robb that surveys a decade of Tylor’s practice and, for the first time, brings together the most comprehensive selection of his unique daguerreotypes, expansive digital photographic series, and hand-made Kaurna cultural objects. The exhibition title is drawn from a Kaurna word, highlighting a significant ongoing aspect of Tylor’s practice: the learning and sharing of his Indigenous language. As well as shadow, turra also translates to reflection, image, and mirror.

Together within James Tylor's solo exhibition the shadows, Tylor and Robb will speak to the diverse bodies of work on display, and the journey taken to bring this exceptional show and corresponding publication to life. With a broad range of material approaches, Tylor's practice is one worth getting to know, for artists, curators and art-lovers alike. 

The corresponding exhibition publication ‘James Tylor: Turrangka... in the shadows’ will also be available to purchase. Developed with the generous support of Vivien Anderson Gallery, this 160-page publication features contributions by James Tylor, Leigh Robb, Coby Edgar, Geoffrey Batchen and Caitlin Eyre.
