Dream by Michael Woods is a photographic experience running from 30 August to 4 September 2019 from 10am to 10pm at Meat Market Stables, 2 Wreckyn St, North Melbourne. Entry to the exhibition is FREE.
Woods is a 23 year old Melbourne based photographer who has worked across a vast range of industries. Over the last 12 months he's taken time off from culinary (Delicious), music icons (for arts magazines), and other shoots to concentrate on developing Dream. An eerie and beguiling dreamscape he's drawn from his own unconscious experiences.
Dream is more than just photographs. It's a whole environment you step into and experience the full potential of your imagination. The sets are part of the exhibition, and its placement by Woods makes you feel like you can walk into Rapunzel's Tower and look at the portraits of her, then trip on her hair as you escape. All sets and props are displayed around the art and are as much a piece of the artwork. Walk into this independent world that's been created in the image of an imaginative mind.
From conceptualisation through to lighting, Woods seeks to capture the light in the darkness and vice versa. The contrast between things intermingles in a fantasy world. With a darker theme throughout, you never know where something might pop up next. For more information and for better understanding about the experience you'll have at this exhibition, head to the discussion section of the event page, and the website. Calendars will be available for purchase throughout the event. Original prints, one of a kind artworks are also for sale.
