The salt lake is a major survey exhibition of Murray Fredericks that brings together Salt, Array, Vanity and his most recent series, Blaze.
Over the last 20 years, Murray Fredericks has established himself as one of the leading international artists challenging the traditions of landscape photography.
In 2003 Murray Fredericks first visited Kati Thanda–Lake Eyre, one of the world’s largest salt lakes, located in the deserts of central Australia. Driven by the boundless potential of abstract space, Fredericks has returned 31 times over the past two decades, exploring perceptual states of being. His chapters, or ‘cycles’ as he calls them, have explored interventions with mirrors, and more recently fire, capturing infinity and the void through the lens of contemplative minimalism. Defined by light, colour and space, Fredericks’s photographs are a phenomenological response to the experience of existing in an ostensibly empty place without scale.
Sydney-based, Murray Fredericks (b. 1970) is an international award–winning artist and film maker, collected by significant public institutions including the National Gallery of Victoria and the National Portrait Gallery, and the private collections of Elton John and Valentino. His projects have resulted in large-scale, minimalistic photographs and taken him through the terrains of Greenland, Lake Eyre and the Himalayas.
