Arising out of Shannon’s Tylee Cottage Residency in 2019, the photographs and videos of Sleeping Near the River were exhibited in 2021 at Whanganui's Sarjeant Gallery, and in this 2022 presentation are accompanied by four new photographic works. The quotidian domestic details of her temporary home are expressed in large-format photographs, documenting both the architectural details of the historic cottage and Shannon's scale-model reconstructions of them. Re-engaging with the model-making so much a feature of her earlier works, bookshelves, a dormer window, a ceiling beam are posed and reconstructed. All appear monumental and subtly luminous, conditions further explored in the four new works that explore the mechanics of memory at a further remove from the Residency. The Residency period also delivered the impetus for new video works included in the exhibition.
