Jana Maré, a Melbourne-based photographer is performing in front of the camera. With her own body she explores interior spaces and homes left empty and forgotten and you find her hiding behind a chimney or under wallpaper. Meanwhile her body emerges as furniture, as part of the architecture, an exposed human presence, camouflaged as a part of the urban interior landscape. With the use of natural light, her photographs inherent a sense of urgency and spontaneity. Maré states: ‘To perform in front of camera, to appear sculptural and at times lifeless, makes me feel alive, especially inside forbidden environments with limited time to photograph’.
