18 October – 5 November 2005: Monica Hatcher – Domestic


Gallery 3

Monica Hatcher’s exhibition, still, has been a photographic search for order, calmness, simplicity and the mundane.  Hatcher’s investigations into the domestic realm have taken her into the homes of friends and strangers.   Comparing preconceived notions of domestic life with the eventual reality, hatcher looks for indicators within the minute details of the domestic environment.

The exhibition consists of C-type photographs varying in three sizes.  The placement of the images within the gallery is an important aspect of still…focussing on the images and how they work as a cohesive series as well as the space they occupy.

Monica Hatcher is currently completing a Masters Degree at the Victorian College of the Arts.
