Marie Shannon: Sleeping Near the River / 14 Aug – 14 Nov 2021

Auckland-based photographer, Marie Shannon was artist-in-residence at Tylee Cottage for three months in 2019. Continuing with her long-standing interest in her domestic environment, the rooms of the cottage and their architectural details have inspired new photographic work. During her time she photographed the spaces and the changing light but also made one to ten scale models from card, and the resulting body of work is a curious blend of fact and fiction. As with many artists but slightly unexpectedly for Shannon (whose work hasn’t often ventured into the realm of landscape) was a fascination with the Whanganui River, its ebb and flow.
