SELINA WALLACE / PERFECTLY IMPERFECT
Femininity is a social construct, not a biological given. Patriarchal society has linked women and nature, in binary opposition to men and culture. In this exhibition, placing her figure in the Australian landscape with a domestic item, Selina Wallace questions the link between woman and nature, and displaces expectations about femininity.
Selina Wallace is an Australian photographer who makes images that make people look, perhaps laugh, and then think. She is currently studying a Bachelor of Photography through the Open College of the Arts (UK) as well as working and bringing up a family. Photography is a chance to use her creative mind, whilst also challenging her scientific background.

MIKE LIM / ROLLER DERBY PICS
A few years ago, some of Mike Lim’s workmates who were roller derby players invited him to a match. When he caught up with them afterwards, he noticed a difference, they were transformed; taller, sweatier, more intense and energised. Lim continued attending, gaining an interest in the excitement of the sport and who the players were.
These portraits were made during the 2016 season of the Adelaide Roller Derby League. With Rineke Dijkstra’s series on bullfighters in the back of my mind, Lim wanted to portray this group of players (in this league mainly women, but some of the referees were men) after their bouts. They were sometimes tired, sometimes victorious, always switched on, and proud of what they were doing.
Mike Lim grew up near Kuala Lumpur and is based in Adelaide. He spends most of his office hours editing and writing online content. Lim previously ran the gallery at the Centre for Creative Photography and still occasionally teaches there.
