Summary of Project:
“GOLD is a series of quiet observations of two noisy metropoles. Surfers Paradise and Dubai are at once displayed as booming, shiny, vast and tacky, framed by beige, sun-bleached suburbs.
Greatly removed from Fennessy’s familiar world – and especially that of Tasmanian upbringing – this work documents the realities and contradictions of two unlikely oases that are loathed by most but a mecca to many.”
