Noctuary outdoor public exhibition

10 – 16 June during Vivid Festival.

A collection of photographs and moving images which transgress the fluidity of dreaming to abstractions of moments in time. Noctuary draws on the transformation that takes place with the fall of night. Images of abandoned urban locations and shadowy scenes correlate with our emotional selves, mirroring feelings of isolation, emptiness and sorrow through absence and stillness.

Hopley’s work explores the often-disconnected relationship between nature, the urban landscape and the human condition. She photographs old, historic, abandoned and forgotten locations, documenting the strange transformation of places that in the day appear common and familiar. While her work is often absent of a person or figure, there is an emotional human undertone as she tries to convey the deep emotional state of nostalgia and the profound melancholy associated with longing for someone, or something.


The outdoor projected exhibition will run from 5.30pm – 10pm
10 – 16 June
