June Exhibitions

Friday 3 – Saturday 18 June

Opening Event: Friday 3 June 6-8pm

Gallery One

Unravel

Nerine Martini

1 between certaintiesLR copy

Unravel is an exhibition of drawings and sculptures. This body of work continues Martini’s interest in ideas of belonging, loss, displacement, migration, travel and home. It is a response both to the uncertainties of our time as well as a personal narrative, one that is yet to fully unravel.

Gallery Two

Site Seeing

Fiona Hooton

codebox3 copy

The works in Site Seeing are models assembled from found, toy-building blocks and sampled fragments of film. They are constructed impressions of cities, their nightly romantic spectacle and their mortgage belts and housing bubbles.

Fiona Hooton is a Canberra-based artist who is currently the artist-in-residence at Thirning Villa, Ashfield until 16 June.

It Speaks of Others

Kate Brown and Tom Hungerford

Curated by Elyse Goldfinch

Ear 580 wide

It Speaks of Others is a collaborative exhibition that will explore the unexpected and abstracted relationships between the human voice and it’s emotive, communicative force. Kate and Tom have both discovered a fascination in the human voice through their musical backgrounds and experiences as artists working with sound. By transforming the gallery into a living organ, the artists will inscribe the space through a vocal performance from 6pm – 7pm on the opening night.

Deep Space

Memory Catchers

Joanne Makas

JM-5 copy

Memory Catchers is an investigation into how memory can be carried or stored within the materiality of an object. The work grows from an inquiry into the physicality of painting and using colour as a device to trigger memories of past places, times and events.

MAY EXHIBITIONS

 Friday 6 – Saturday 21 May 2016

OPENING NIGHT: FRIDAY 6 MAY 6-8PM

Gallery One

Out of Time

Michelle Heldon, Taryn Raffan and Kath Fries

Taryn-Raffan-Oracle copy

Out of Time traces the artists’ personal engagements with place and time during their residencies in Greenland, Iceland and Finland. Their works range from drawings and sculptures to videos, photographs and installations, conveying felt experiences and responses to the pull of the magical, inner power of the landscapes, icebergs, forests, lava fields, cultures and story-telling traditions of the far north.

Gallery Two

Love Come

Yiorgo Yiannopoulos

YiorgoY copy

Sites that facilitate queer and homosexual erotic encounters are diverse. Clustered throughout the city, toilets, bathhouses, parks and the streets themselves are sites of queer sexual resistance which, when they lay dormant, can be activated with a single glance.

The Cranny

Collusions

Bailee Lobb and Amy Claire Mills

AmyBaileeMC

Collusions explores collaboration as a secretive and private act between two people, when we make we make together. The work is only ever discussed between the collaborators and evolves not only through their connection, but also through the exclusion of the outside world.

Deep Space

Dune

Uri Auerbach

DUNE
Inspired by recent developments in Australian immigration policy, as well as the artist’s family history as exiles, refugees and immigrants, Dune is a meditation on territory and identity: a contemplation of borders, belonging, displacement and mutation.

ALL WELCOME!
