For SALA Festival 2016, CACSA presents the work of Indigenous South Australian artist, James Tylor. In Territorial Encounters, Tylor reinterprets the British colonisation of South Australia through a series of photographs, objects and an immersive sound installation.

James Tylor’s practice uses early photographic techniques such as the daguerreotype, albumen and cyanotype processes to explore complex issues of racial identity and cultural representation in Australian society. Historically, wet plate photographic processes were originally used to document Indigenous Australians and Maori culture in the 19th century. This process underpins Tylor’s contemporary investigations into his own Aboriginal, European and Maori descent, corresponding with Australia’s dark colonial past.

Non-Space Generator: Lily Ahlefeldt

Non-space Generator is an interactive, immersive architecture-come-human-powered machine, consisting of a cluster of life sized revolving doors. Melding public and domestic spaces when activated or used, each door transforms into a generator of sorts.

Suspended: Jane Skeer

Skeer’s practice is predominantly based in sculpture and installation, involving material in a state of flux. Skeer works with the discarded materials of the everyday, making audiences re-think relationships with familiar readymade objects and their associated sensory/haptic memories.
