Simryn Gill often begins her photographic projects by posing a question. For Standing Still, an ongoing series of more than 110 photographs that premieres in the MATRIX Program, Gill queried whether a group of photographs could “hold within them, and between them, that unsettling quality of a sort of hesitation in time, stilled time. Time standing still.“ Gill, who is based in Sydney, Australia, was born and raised in Malaysia. The images were taken on return trips between 2000 and 2003 while working on other series, including Dalam, an impressive collection of 258 photographs capturing the interiors of individual Malaysian homes in what becomes a survey of social, economic, and religious diversity. Standing Still combines the peculiarities of location and Gill’s intention to record a passing moment, creating what she calls “a place in time.”
