In the Back of My Mind was a solo project by Zoë Croggon that presented a selection of photo collages and site-specific video works that look at the physical response to space and the corporeality of memory.
The work presented the human body both at odds with and in step with its environment, immediately restricted by and in symbiotic harmony with architecture. The works extend Henri Lefebvre’s conception of space as a product of the social human body to the context of the gallery.
In the Back of My Mind focused especially on the notion of space as incomplete and malleable, subject to human interference.
Zoë Croggon is a Melbourne-based artist primarily working with collage, as well as sculpture, video and drawing. Her practice considers the relationship between the kinetic body and its surroundings, contemplating the role we play in our environment and how deeply our surroundings inform the cadence of our lives.
Zoë Croggon has a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Victorian College of the Arts with First Class Honours. She has held solo exhibitions at Daine Singer, Melbourne and the Melbourne Art Fair. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at various institutions including the National Gallery of Victoria and NGV Studio, Melbourne; Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne; Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne; Samstag Museum of Art, Adelaide; Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne; and the VCA Margaret Lawrence Gallery, Melbourne.
In March 2017, Croggon presented Tenebrae, a solo exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne for the NGV Festival of Photography. Zoë Croggon is represented by Daine Singer, Melbourne.
