Stills is delighted to present Jane Brown’s series Sporting Country, following its 2016 debut in the prestigious Basil Sellers Art Prize, which commissions contemporary Australian artists to make new work about sport. Sporting Country comprises a suite of photographs of places related to sport in rural Australia. Brown’s small, and thoughtful black and white portraits of sporting clubs, stadiums and swimming pools are a contrast to the colourful energy and fervor of Australian sporting life in country towns. With great attention to detail and anthropological eye Brown captures the layers of history and the complexities of culture within the spaces she depicts.
