Selina Ou

"Selina Ou’s photographic practice engages with themes of displacement and isolation within the economic structure of daily urban life. Her early work explored white Australian image stereotypes, which further led to investigating the workers realm in a more general sense. Commercial spaces such as supermarkets, chemists and leisure centres become Ou’s playground as they reveal the mechanics of consumer society. Ou’s documentary style work plays with anthropological connotations, and further reflects the influence of art history on the way we view the world, and its mechanics, communities and economies."
