Published on the occasion of the first survey exhibition of Australian conceptual artist Derek Kreckler, this eponymous book brings together photography, video, installation, sound, and performance works drawn from the artist’s early experimental practice of the 1970s, through to his more recent focus on still and moving imagery in the 21st century. In it, the relationship between culture and the environment is considered, with a focus on representations of landscape, national identity, and the role of chance in determining these. Evident is Kreckler’s desire to explore, extrapolate, and test our understanding of our physical, cultural, and social surrounds.
