Between 2016 and 2017 Julie Fragar attended a number of criminal trials in the Supreme Court of Queensland as an observer from the public gallery. Fragar was interested in the moments where a person’s private life becomes open to public scrutiny and she analysed the way in which a court case compresses a person’s biographical history into a short, hard narrative. Based on this experience, Fragar created Next Witness.
The five large-scale paintings in Next Witness cut across time, space and perspectives, to consider – all at once – a crime’s circumstances, the courtroom as a very specific social space and the inextricable role of the public as witness.
