Narcissus, Angela Tiatia’s first major solo exhibition in Australia. Comprising a new high definition video and photographic stills, Narcissus is a contemporary reimagining of the classical Greek myth, exploring contempo- rary visual culture’s worship of the self. Filmed in super slow-motion at an indoor swimming pool using a crane mounted camera, the film arcs from contemplation to catastrophe, opening on a close-up of Narcissus as he gazes longingly at his image reflected in a pool of deep black water. Referencing myriad sources from the classical to the contemporary, including historical literature and images from the inter- net, Narcissus takes as its starting point, the painting of the same name by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, now in the Galleria Nazi- onale d’Arte Anticam, Rome. Tiatia filmed the work with Director of Photography Benjamin Shirley, production company Finch Compa- ny and producer Cath Anderson, working with 80 professional actors, performance artists and crew, the largest production of her career.
