    Into Dust, James Tunks

    DESCRIPTION

    Photography represents a mode of conceptual, material and historical enquiry for Melbourne-born, Frankfurt-based artist James Tunks. An expansion from his 2017 solo exhibition Elsewhere at the Centre for Contemporary Photography (Melbourne), his debut book Into Dust sees Tunks construct fake astronomical photographs using found and accumulated materials – crushed and pulverised to mimic interstellar nebular. While these sweeping vistas are immersive and engulfing in their aesthetic scope, their associated lists of materials come to form fascinating abstract texts, which echo the history of astrophotography and its pioneers (Edwin Hubble and EE Barnard among them) as adroitly as they tease out evidence of Tunks' day-to-day. As such, Into Dust forges an ode to the genre and sketches an indirect self-portrait in the same breath.
