Country Arts SA, in partnership with the Art Gallery of South Australia and the Regional Galleries Association of South Australia, is proud to present the touring exhibition Robyn Stacey: Ray of Light.

This exhibition will tour to venues across regional South Australia from September 2018 to September 2020 with Port Lincoln included in mid-2020.

First shown as part of the 2016 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Magic Object, Stacey’s photographs are made through the magic of a camera obscura, whereby the external world is trapped and inverted within the room.

“The magic of the camera obscura is that it makes us question what we take for granted – the everyday experience is presented upside down and in reverse, mimicking the way an image forms on the retina,” Stacey said. 

Included in the exhibition are camera obscura photographs of iconic and well-known sites around Adelaide, including Carrick Hill, The Cedars at Hahndorf, The Lighthouse Wharf Hotel in Port Adelaide, Parliament House and the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).

The exhibtion will be at the Nautilus Arts Centre, Port Lincoln, from June to August 2020.
