Tunc  — 2012
OK Gallery
Perth, WA

Tunc – a clipping from a Latin phrase meaning ‘then’ and a pointed anagram – continues Casey Ayres’ investigation into beauty and mythology, extending his photographic practice into a series of repurposed, sculptural ‘props’. Ayres’ draws an uneasy line between autobiography and fiction, altering and documenting his immediate surroundings as a set pursuant of a heightened, cinematic narrative following a decline into unwarranted violence and dangerous nostalgia.
