Tracey Moffatt is one of Australia’s most renowned contemporary artists. Having exhibited extensively in museums all over the world for over three decades. Known for being a powerful visual storyteller, Moffatt is highly regarded for her formal and stylistic experimentation in film, photography and video.

Touch (2017) first premiered in Moffatt’s solo presentation in the Australian Pavilion of the 57th Venice Biennale 2017 in an exhibition titled, MY HORIZON. Belonging to a series of ten ochre-hued photographs titled Body Remembers, Touch (2017) recalls a history that is at once personal and universal. Set in a deserted, dreamlike landscape, the photographs within this series evoke a vexed emotional terrain, one that is imbued with both yearning and mourning, longing and sorrow.
