Visit the glossy, comic-strip world of Adventures by internationally acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Tracey Moffatt. Carefully orchestrating retro images and well-worn stereotypes including the poster-boy hero and submissive starlet, Moffatt creates heightened yet darkly ambiguous photographic narratives.

Alongside
Adventures Stills presents Love, a spectacular video work in which the artist has carefully spliced together scenes from her favourite Hollywood melodramas. Cinematic cliché gives way to an ominously sexy feminism with hours of film edited to a succession of passionate embraces, acts of betrayal, frenzied violence and finally revenge.

Adventures is presented in partnership with the Victoria Miro Gallery.
