Transit is an exhibition of photographs that documents the movement of people at Hornsby Station at different times of the day over a six month period.
Hornsby Station, at the Northern end of the Sydney Metropolitan region, is a hub connecting rail and bus commuters from the area and Central Coast and distributing them across Greater Sydney. Hornsby and surrounding suburbs also has a large migrant community. It is a vibrant place with a constant movement of people and cultures.
Transit reflects the various migratory patterns of people throughout the day and evening, movements that are emblematic of larger pattern of human migration. Through the medium of photography Nathalie Hartog Gautier has captured the fleeting, unregistered moments of the journey; the moment of a train passing, a second in time, in a day, in a month; acknowledgment of the recent past and anticipation of a future destination.
Nathalie Hartog Gautier is a contemporary Australian artist whose practice focuses on the concepts of migrations and transformations, attachments and associations, especially when place interconnects with memory and identity.
