The Fear Series - 2005
Gregory Ackland’s series "Fear" deals with themes of fear, identity, isolation, survival and belonging. He creates confronting images where there is no clear order of events, or explanation for these situations. His figures are stripped of individual identity and left in a state of limbo, a flux, a non-space in both time and position. These works are journeys without destination, events without outcome, and occupy the intervals between points of departure and arrival. This body of work was selected for the Hatched ’05 : National Graduate Exhibition at Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, Perth, Western Australia.
