  • Crossing Lines

    Lee, Pei-Jung

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    The aim of research is to explore Chinese women's role from the ancient time till now. Traditionally Chinese women were restrained by many boundaries. There were no sense of "self" in their world. They were taught to depend on their fathers when they were young, devoted to their husbands when they got married and took great care of their children when they became mothers. Their behaviors were strictly demanded by the society: walk without turning, talk without moving lips, sit without moving knees, stand without moving skirts, feel joy without laughing out loud and angry without raising voice. How are those boundaries influencing the Chinese women now?

  • Fossil Cairn - The Weight of Destiny

    Jenkinson, Megan

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Fossil Cairn deliberates on the scientific, ethical, and phenomenological meanings posed by the 176 fossil and mineral specimens found beside the bodies of Scott and his party on their ill-fated return from the South Pole, 1912. Central to the installation are my photos of these rocks (Natural History Museum collection, London) cut out and wall-mounted in a cairn-like shape 250x240 cm, reiterating the snow cairn raised over the bodies when found. This accompanies expedition objects and a diagram with 48 quotes in snowflake form, each branch a different line of thought. ???Jenkinson takes a new angle on the [Antarctic] landscape in her installation???Christchurch Art Gallery director Jenny Harper says these remnants of human endeavour evoke a sense of timelessness and represent the ultimate price paid by Scott and his team???, C. Moore, The Press. In sum, Scott???s scientific specimens are reexamined through artistic and ethical filters, a discussion furthered in my conference paper Ponderable Matter, Hobart, 2010.

  • ...a tent, pitched in the wilderness

    Jenkinson, Megan

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    ???A tent, pitched in the wilderness???, shown at prominent Sydney gallery Stills, features deserts, architecture and artifacts photographed in Egypt and European museums in late 2011. Inspired by Antarctica, this work identifies a visual and experiential correspondence between the deserts of hot and cold regions, yet acknowledges major differences in the impact of civilization: ???Jenkinson???s photographs of / deserts [contain] phantom remains of past civilizations and intimations of possible futures???, Sydney Morning Herald. In highlighting the continuing relevance of the past, this work stands in contra-distinction to the current tendency to give primacy to the new and ever-present, e.g. the recent Egyptian uprising is shown as part of an historical continuum of conflict rather than an insolated incident, a point astutely unraveled by S. Rosenblum in the interview she conducted for East Sydney Radio.

  • Fleet Light

    Jenkinson, Megan

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Fleet Light was my first exhibition at Stills, a leading Australian gallery (established 1991) representing artists working at the forefront of contemporary photo media practice. Significantly this was also my first show of exclusively digital lenticular prints, a process I first worked with in 2007. I consider this exhibition to be a major statement of both medium and concept; of this technically tricky distinctive medium with its elusive, shifting qualities, and its utilization in the the recreation of equally changeable lighting effects (as in auroae and mirages) and the optical nature of vision itself (such as afterimages). This show effectively links my Antarctica research with my ongoing interest in the colour theories of Johnnn von Goethe's, moving from atmospheric effects to optical effects, the latter that were to be further extended in the national touring exhibition Second Silence. This exhibition lead to further exhibitions at Stills and helped to reestablished my artistic reputation in Australia (further to the three major public shows I was invited to participate in between 1987 and 1999)

  • The Light Horizon

    Jenkinson, Megan

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    The Light Horizon exhibition draws on photographs taken during my two weeks on the Ice as an Antarctic Artist???s Fellow, Dec. 2005. The show was significant for its scale and scope ??? 40 digital photo collage works, and lenticular prints, from eight different series. It represents the culmination of my most significant research outputs from the ???Antarctica??? project to date and included works selected from the exhibitions The Dark Continent, Jonathan Smart Gallery, Christchurch, Jun-July 2007, and The Weight of Water, Mark Hutchins Gallery, Wellington, Sept 2007. This exhibition occupied both the downstairs and upstairs galleries at Two Rooms, one of New Zealand???s leading galleries. [583] Commentary: This research acknowledges Antarctica as a complex site that cannot be summed up in one particular artistic approach. The images I produced represent a major departure from my previous photographic practice and constitute a range of approaches differing considerably from the majority of photography undertaken on the Continent. In my work landscape was the starting point for a series of meditations on Antarctica???s heroic age of exploration, Antarctica as a place of speculation and wonder, a site of scientific study and more recently commercial speculation. Digital montage enabled me to overlay past and present, the scientific and cultural, while the visual trickery of the lenticular process (first used in The Dark Continent, 2007) provided further conceptual shifts, emphasizing the uncertainty and instability of the landscapes in view. Virginia Were in Volatile Imaginings, Art News New Zealand, Winter 2008, wrote: ???Megan Jenkinson???s visit to Antarctica has spawned an extraordinary series of photographs, which present a post-romantic view of our engagement with nature?????? ???[her work is] like an extended love poem to a place she found both confounding and inspiring?????? ???Jenkinson???s photographic montages are brilliant evocations of these atmospheric phenomena [auroras and mirages], visual tricks from the imagination of this acclaimed artist???.
