Shrouded by thick, toxic-looking smoke, spectators at a racetrack endure an alarming, post apocalyptic world devoid of trees, blue skies or clean air to pursue their passion for racing. While their bodies struggle to deal with the uncomfortable conditions, their faces remain transfixed by the events going on just beyond the frame. For Corridore, the race itself is unimportant: "I did not wish to document or comment on those events. I was interested in the spectator's responses to the shifting conditions of their environments, their moments of unease when they lose connection to a tangible landscape." Michael Corridore lives in Sydney and New York and has exhibited widely in Australia. Angry Black Snake forms part of an ongoing body of work which he has been documenting for more than five years.
