Ghosts of Monsters is a photographic installation that considers the transformation of neighbourhood architecture as both a representation of evolving tastes and an expression of shifting cultural capital. This three-year-long project furthers Poletto’s interest in how settler communities express themselves in outer urban contexts through their domestic architecture. The absence of bodies in these photographic composites avoids documentary as an endpoint. Rather, Poletto suggests a narrative that disrupts the colonial heritage home construct.
The exhibition will be open for viewing on Saturday May 26 and Sunday May 27 from 10am–5pm.
