Horizonites - Call for Submissions Post Office Projects
Kaurna Country, February 2023
Horizonites is a forthcoming exhibition at Post Office Projects (Kaurna Country/Port Adelaide, Feb 2023) seeking photographic contributions. This exhibition emerges from our shared research into questions of time, planetarity and connectivity as they relate to the horizon line - that ever-present bisection of space that informs much of our existence. Drawn from Gerald Murnane’s The Plains this exhibition attempts to manifest a particularly terrestrial ‘overview effect’, with attention to that ‘scant layer of haze where land and sky merged in the farthest distance’.
For this project, we are seeking photographs of the horizon line from anyone, anywhere in the world. The photographic contributions to this exhibition will be printed in various scales, and installed in such a manner to create a continual horizon throughout the exhibition space. The only restrictions we place on contributions are that the photographs must depict the horizon, and information regarding the time, date and location or coordinates of capture must be provided. We will arrange all printing and installation for this exhibition. Contributors will be credited, and these photographs will form part of an ongoing archive. Please send through images as a JPG file.
