PORNO Reinterpreted

Photograph of Zhitian Zhang by Zhitian Zhang, wearing the t-shirt from my PORNO exhibition in 2008. It was given to him recently by a stranger after he admired the t-shirt she was wearing – she is V., a Melbourne-based collector of my work. I love random acts of kindness and generosity. And I love the idea of men and women of different ages and backgrounds walking around (and doing cool photoshoots) in my PORNO tee.

Hi Hazel

Will you ever have a show in Melbourne again? Its been a very long time since.

As you may know the Melbourne Art Fair scheduled for 2016 was cancelled. We badly need some new excitement. A controversial Dooney exhibition would fit the bill.

Perhaps you will photograph Zhitian yourself one day. He is so charming, enthusiastic, beautifully photogenic and really brings that killer Tee to life.

love

Hi V,

Please forgive my delayed reply. I will exhibit in Melbourne again. I'll write a blog entry (soon-ish) to answer you more fully.

I like Zhitian's photographs of himself but yes, perhaps I will photograph him one day...
