Rowan Conroy - Sightseeing

Rowan Conroy - Sightseeing

Rowan Conroy’s practice is informed by an interdisciplinary experience of field archaeology, and the multifaceted nature of photography as memory aid, historical resource and a reflective form of art.

‘Sightseeing’ highlights the dense and discordant histories that can inhabit an image through the visual evidence of material culture and human intervention in the land.

With several bodies of work investigating sites across Cyprus, Turkey, Syria, and Lake George in NSW, Australia, this photographic exhibition represents the ancient past and the most recent incursions of the present.

In 2017 Conroy was awarded the Create NSW Regional Arts Fellowship.
