​Exhibition The Martians are coming! Head On Photo Festival 2017 

April 28, 2017

Sissy Reyes is proud to present her solo show 'The Martians are Coming!' As an associate exhibitor for Head On Photo Festival 2017.

Featured in the online galleries of the UK's ‘FORMAT Festival 2017: Habitat’, the international ‘Lens Culture Emerging talents Awards 2016’, and supported by the Ian Potter Cultural Trust Emerging artist Grant and the Arts NSW Artist Grant by the National Association for the Visual Arts, this cinematic series will be held at Gaffa Gallery 281 Clarence St, Sydney, from 25th May to 5th June.

‘The Martians are coming!’ is an exploration of time, place and presence in today’s information-rich existence. As our everyday interactions become dominated by our dependancy on digital technology, we paradoxically alienate ourselves in our devices while trying to connect with others, yet ceasing to connect with the ‘here and now’ even when in complete solitude. Are we ever present? Through this premise and inspired by her love of SciFi, Reyes sets out to depict reimagined moments of solitude and presence, celebrating them as rare an occasion as an encounter with an alien life form.

Interview The Cornet - Ian Potter Cultural Trust newsletter

October 23, 2016

At Arteles I had the unique opportunity to work with long twilight light that only happens during summer in Finland. To have the time to experiment, fail and succeed on a daily basis was a major learning curve for me. With a background in filmmaking, I work under controlled budget and results-driven conditions which can be a bit tight on the experimental side of things. Being able to create imagery through a more experimental method, and in an experimental way, was a great challenge that taught me so much more about myself and the art making process. (read more)
