Published to coincide with her major exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) in Melbourne, Polly Borland’s new book Morph offers an incisive new vantage on the celebrated Australian-born, Los Angeles-based photographer’s explorations of anthropomorphic soft-sculpture and abstracted portraiture. The new series of works – which were made in collaboration with model Sibylla Phipps, who also contributes a compelling psychoanalytic text to the book – serves as a dramatic, almost surrealistic expansion of Borland’s visual language, with her attention to colour and reimagining of form coming to the fore. At once tender and troubling, the works that populate Morph, the artist’s second book for Perimeter Editions, are poignantly human and pointedly not.
