Dreaming Mum again by Leah King-Smith
In 2018 to accompany the Bowness Photography Prize exhibition, MGA launched an annual exhibition series to showcase and explore the practice of a past winner or finalist.
Leah King-Smith is both a previous Bowness Photography Prize finalist and an MGA collection artist. King-Smith is a Queensland-based artist with a photographic practice extending across three decades. This exhibition presents the series, Dreaming Mum again, which includes King-Smith’s Bowness Photography Prize work from 2018. The series depicts the artist’s mother placed back into the context of her ancestral lands through her signature process of layering photographs.
