Working like a film director, Gregory Crewdson creates elaborate scenarios either on location or sound stages, using sets, actors and full production crews, all in search of a perfect ‘moment of grace’.
This touring exhibition brings together three bodies of work; 'Beneath the Roses' (2003-2007), 'Sanctuary' series (2010) and 'Fireflies' series (2006), each seeking or constructing ‘a lonely place’ through its distinct relationship with photographic histories
'In a Lonely Place' is the largest display of Crewdson’s photography in New Zealand. Curated by Estelle Af Malmborg, Jens Erdman Rasmussen and Felix Hoffmann, the exhibition is a joint project between Melbourne's Centre for Contemporary Photography (for the Melbourne Festival) and Brisbane's Institute of Modern Art. The exhibition will travel to the Dunedin Public Art Gallery.
