The absurd photographs of Kate Bernauer

The photography of Brisbane-based artist Kate Bernauer contains a narrative, and that’s no accident. She constructs her pictures with theatrical lighting and props in specific locations in order to construct a story. The intention of her current Sydney exhibition, I’ll Be Home For Dinner, is to ‘address the contradictions and absurdities of everyday life’. Ideas for her pictures come from dreams, along with absurd true stories. The effort and thought behind each photograph is obvious and they make for compelling viewing.
