Probable Portraits presents key works in Kate Murphy’s career since her graduation from art school in 1999. Murphy’s videos use documentary filmmaking and portraiture traditions to reveal the complex and rich inner-lives of her subjects, who include school children, the artist’s mother, a Greek-Australian migrant family, and an aspiring child pop-star. Using interviews, cinematography and elaborate sound design, Murphy explores intimate and moving aspects of her subject’s lives including their experiences of migration, grief, motherhood, religious faith, spirituality, childhood and aging.
