Gallery One: David Gatiss – Telling Stories
Story telling is a collective of objects made in a variety of media.
Telling their own story
Once upon time stories
Visual illustrations of daily illuminations
Boats that don’t sail
Trees that don’t grow.
Black walls held up by thoughts.
Time spent between creation of ideas
and the creation objects.
The Canning Room: Charlotte Ivey – Lobe
Ivey’s process welds impulsive reflexes of dysphoric psychological states with intentional compositional choices. Out of this emerge strange, fleshy landscapes, from fragile pieces on glass to bold works whose strokes long to burst off the canvas—the artist invites the observer into states of a cyclically altering psyche.
Gallery One: Ashika Harper – It Was There and Now It Is Gone
It Was There and Now it is Gone, is dedicated to my family home in Wandella, NSW. My home was lost in the 2020 bushfires. This series merges my past and present experience with this place. It considers how new forms of reality can be created through the process of re-imagining memories.
The Canning Room: Ami Taib – Sans Function
Sans Function comprises a group of tongue in cheek ceramic sculptures where the application and techniques of wheel-thrown pottery are pushed beyond their functional intent. By presenting functional techniques outside of their expected place, artist and ceramicist Ami Taib presents a playful irreverence toward a medium steeped in tradition.
Gallery One: Old Four Legs – The Transept of Function
This body of work finds itself adjacent to the ordinary confines of conventional furniture. The pieces are animated steel compositions of linework and negative space; abstracted geometries crafted out of creative impulse, a sort of automatism. They seek to interrogate the duality of the medium – exposing the soft, delicate beauty that is often concealed beneath its robust exterior.
The Canning Room: Sophie Harle – Liminal
I am intrigued by the impact rituals and daily practice have on our state of mind, whether it be a morning walk, daily yoga, or the ritual of a cup of tea. Liminal invites you into the space that is opened up by daily practice.
Each morning during the exhibition, I will be making tea in the space, and each morning for three months leading up to the exhibition I will be making a stepping stone, to then be arranged and rearranged to step us through the space, creating an interior tea garden.
Liminal is as much about the experience of the space as the objects themselves so these objects can be held, moved, felt and experienced, as we sit with the space and share tea
