Oneiroi: Bill Henson x Scanlan Theodore

Scanlan Theodore and artist Bill Henson continue their creative relationship with photography series Oneiroi. Priceless artefacts from the Melbourne Hellenic Museum’s Gods, Myths & Mortals exhibition take on new significance through Henson’s lense, in his adept manipulation of light and shadow. To celebrate the installation, Scanlan Theodore, in collaboration with Henson, have published a limited edition book documenting the dreamlike portraits, captivating without need for explanation. In Henson’s words, ambiguity is always at the centre of an interesting experience because this causes us to question, to wonder why a thing holds our attention”. And in this fascinating collision of history, art and fashion, his theory rings true.
