Galerie Pavlova is pleased to present Between Worlds from Melbourne based photographer Polixeni Papapetrou.
Polixeni's somewhat surreal photographic work is immediately inviting through its bold colours and the size of the prints. After this initial meeting the viewer may begin to see the imagery is more complex than first perceived, playing with notions of childhood fantasy and adult consciousness.
With Between Worlds, Polixeni portrays her children with costumes and animal masks against the Australian and European landscape. These environments which are reminiscent of childhood fairy tales, show the characters in an undefined place - between childhood and adulthood - neither human nor animal - between an old world and a new.
