Marlene MacCallum

Marlene MacCallum series Townsite House is another example of the tableau vivant with deliberately constructed sets composed and photographed as scenes into a peculiar world. Each piece explores ones perception of a given architectural interior, which is then mitigated by our past experiences and memories of similar spaces.

The manipulation of composition and scale serve to reinforce a sense of spatial inconsistency in each piece for an ambiguous unhomely effect. Pillars or overgrown plants obscure our view of the scene where the use of light becomes a dominant presence contrasting illuminated objects with others in shadow, transforming their presence across the scene.
