Anne Zahalka has been announced as a finalist in the prestigious Bowness Photography Prize at the Museum of Australian Photography (MAPh) for her work ‘Kunstkammer’!
The work is a recreation of Anne’s studio within the MAPh gallery space which presents an abundance of photographs, project folders, mock-ups and preparatory sketches from across the artist’s highly regarded 40 year career. Part memoir and part archival, the work provides a rare insight into the unseen life of an artist and employs many of Anne’s signature techniques such as photomontage and trompe-l’œil.
Over the last 17 years, the William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize has emerged as an important annual survey of contemporary photographic practice in Australia and one of the most prestigious prizes in the country. MAPh invites artists to submit still photo-based media including analogue and digital photography created over the last year for consideration.
The Bowness Prize exhibition will be open at MAPh until 12th November 2023.
