The Disassembly Line
The Disassembly Line is a documentary photography series about the work – and the people who undertake the work – performed on ‘the killing floor’ of a rural NSW abattoir.
The series is the first exhibition by Nicholas Walton-Healey since the launch of his first book, Land Before Lines.
The Disassembly Line considers the implications of privileging the principles of rationality, compartmentalization, progress, efficiency etc. above all else.
It asks: how do these principles shape the faces and bodies of the people whose daily work is predicated upon them?
The Disassembly Line is a sensory utopia (but viewer discretion is advised).
