September 28th 2018-Jaunary 28th 2019 

CLAREFOTOGRAFIE is proud to announce exhibition of Clare McShanag ‘GERMANE Opens on the 28th of September 2018 at Hyatt Hotel Canberra and will run through until the 28th of January 2019. Opening night celebrations are from 6.30 – 8.30pm on the Friday 28TH September 2018, RSVP to Clare: 

“GERMANE” is on the material and natural elements of life that are enlightened in the story of universal creation/genesis, the beauty in creation and destruction. I like to traverse the boundaries of what is considered reality.

My body of work Germane represents finding the meaning of ones self in different contexts and stages of life that we arrive at and translate through our spiritual and material experiences. We form our identity through the inner and outer struggles we experience in the process of everyday life, striving to find peace within through self-realization.

Clare McShanag’s solo show ‘Germane’ is visual explosion of matter and meaning, relevant to the subject under consideration – to life, to our humanity. I seek my inspiration from life and movement, capturing the dynamic moments and the colour of life. Both dark and beautiful, these photographs expose a mixture of the surreal and abstract. Photographs that are distorted yet discernible, visibly soft, yet impact the viewer with their sharper edge.

McShanag’s photographic works ignite a fuel and awaken an experience for the eyes of the beholder. “Art reflecting inner life”

Up to and including 06. August, eight multimedia objects can be seen in which students from the university of ansbach were involved.

More information about the exhibition:

At the 500. Th Reformation, the audiovisual art project exchange – Bach Luther was developed by a German-Australian artist. Six Multimedia objects to Martin Luther’s catechism have already been shown in the Berlin Cathedral and in the bach eisenach.

To the bachwoche ansbach (28. July to 6. August), in the kunsthaus riding ansbach, the six objects are now in combination with two other interactive installations, one on the campus of the university of Ansbach (Foyer 50 building) Is presented.

In, the university of technology () and the university of technology Sydney (UTS) took part in the work of the university of ansbach and the university of technology (UTS). With a great deal of effort, students of the master programme have worked on multimedia information and communication as well as the bachelor’s programme of multimedia and communication in the objects that can now be shown to a wide public in ansbach.

Until 6. August, the light and music project “exchange – Bach Luther” is running at the kunsthaus riding in ansbach. Since I was also involved, I would like to contribute a few cinematic impressions from the opening and look forward to seeing a visit to the exhibition.

Muk and mik students at the university of ansbach have composed seven of the nine soundtracks for the objects. The entire project will go back to eisenach next week and will continue to be issued until 28. February 2018

The music was composed by Perplex On.

Since the movie “on the run” has been created, not all objects are included. Lux _ Chorale is also not seen at the kunsthaus riding in ansbach.

Clare McShanag (Tuesday) BELIEF (the Creed)

Mail Attachment

I wanted to make my piece personal – about renunciation and voluntary surrender as a sacrifice – a window to my soul. As I was growing up I responded to many of Luther’s ideas of how the church formed the verses of the creed and prayers, which relates to my work. I have created images of The Cathedral (A place of prayer, worship and sacrifice), Jesus Christ (The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit) and Earth (The Creation of sun, earth, water and life). Joining these images with sound as one piece creates a beautiful spiritual abstract vision of my understanding of Luther and Bach’s relationship of words, music and faith – taking me on a heavenly journey.

Music is by Joanna Russo

“Creed” – Project concept: I made a soundtrack, inspired by Bach and the miracle of life. The music has to be symbol of personal survival and a personal interpretation of the Lord’s believer. The context of the music is Jesus’ pleading words of prayer to God shortly before he was betrayed and arrested. There is no place for depression, while acutely aware of the fleeting minutes of freedom on earth. It seems like the music is playing through the body, a mystic line through the soul. The depth of the music describes brilliantly the depth of the pictures of Clare’s box. I also used an echo sound of the voices and of the natural sounds, included in the mirroring image. I am representing the lost soul using the sounds of the wind and the sounds of converged waves above. And when they reside, everything changes to something quite peaceful and relaxing.

The 500th Anniversary of the start of the Reformation will be a major event in Germany in 2017, with big celebrations in Wittenburg, Berlin and Eisenach.

Ingo Bracke (Light Artist, Berlin and Detmold), Cornelius People (Professor of Sound Design in Ansbach) and Mike Day (UTS) have been invited by Joerg Hansen (Director BachHaus Museum, Eisenach) to mount an exhibition in the crypt of the Berliner Dom Cathedral in Berlin to open on 9 March 2017. It will move to the BachHaus Museum in Eisenach from the 29th of April opening and stay there until 4th of November, apart from a brief period in mid July when it will be displayed in Ansbach for a week. Based on similar past exhibitions attendances in Berlin should exceed 50,000 and Eisenach expects over 100,000 viewers. The heart of the exhibition will be an array of 6 small totems/display boxes, Inside each totem will be placed another container made by an invited artist.

The content will be an object/image/display/effect which mat be viewed through appropriately sized aperture(s)/eye-pieces.

The content will illustrate/illuminate/interrogate one of the 6 parts of Luther’s Catechism: 1 (Monday’s lesson) LAW (10 Commandments); 2 (Tuesday) BELIEF (the Creed); 3 (Wednesday) PRAYER (Our Father…); 4 BAPTISM (incl the holy trinity); 5 CONFESSION; 6 COMMUNION.

(Tuesday) BELIEF (the Creed)

My work consists of 3x transparency images that I photographed individually

1.Cathedral: – A place of Prayer

2.Jesus Christ: – The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit

2.Earth: – Sun, Water, Life on earth

These are joined as one to form an abstract image that still reveals all theses images in some way, while combining together to illuminate the theme – BELIEF.

Constructed in a box (the totem) where you would look through a viewfinder (Hole) I have created a three dimensional prism of mirrors within and around the image within the Totem, so that the portrayed image is magnified and multiplied.

A light source from the back of the box illuminates the transparency’s image, enhancing the kaleidoscopic mirror prism effect and the highlighting the divine nature of the Creed.

The content may also include visual references to the hymns that Bach wrote to Luther’s words to the 6 parts of the catechism. Recordings have already been made of these and will be used as the starting point for soundscapes to be included in each box, listened to through headsets.

To Blackeye gallery that has so much diversity on the wall space, it creates a great mood for my Art work to be explored in. Thank -you to Tom for your originial gallery space.Happy times 🙂

GERMANE the night of the opening, and what a night that was! The gallery was buzzing with many other artists, photographers, art lovers and generated a lot of interest in sales of my works. The exhibition has benefited me in so many ways and has been a grace-filled, fulfilling experience and also generated  new opportunities to display my work. What I  strive for most in my life is to create and be able to share my spiritual light for all to see and feel and engage with.
