Amanda Williams' work focuses on architectural modernism and the history of photography. Her work currently engages with the allegory of the cave and the concept of entropy by using materials and processes that evolve and change over time – such as the use of unfixed and solarized gelatin silver prints and bleached C-Type prints.
Amanda will talk about how she arrived at this way of working by showing bodies of photographic work produced by her research into the use of concrete in brutalist architecture that range from the origins of 'beton brut' with Le Corbusier, to the Wallerawang power station and Snowy Mountains Hydro scheme in NSW and the currently endangered Sirius apartment block in Sydney. Amanda's latest work is also on exhibition at Articulate Project Space until 2 October.
