Artist Talks and Arvo Tea

Saturday 17 June 3-5pm

GALLERY ONE

When one of my favourite authors, Siri Hustvedt, wrote an essay, My Louise Bourgeois, about one of my favourite artists, I got a little excited. Emotional, even. Louise Bourgeois has become the poster-grrl for many women artists, embodying and transcending the moniker of Confessional Artist. Woman Artist. Confessional Woman Artist. Mother. Difficult Woman. Hustvedt’s essay is the catalyst for My Emotionalism; an exhibition where the primary mutual endeavour of the artists gathered is to translate emotional states. And more.

Susan Andrews

Off-centre

Off-centre in the conventional sense implies that someone or something is not balanced, displaced in space or surface. To reflect some order back into the equation, I chose to work with units of equal measurement but of variable proportion such as the square, rectangle and triangle. By working with these compatible systems of unity, but of varying proportion and scale, I was then able to juxtapose and reconfigure each piece to convey an array of irregular and unfamiliar forms.

THE CRANNY

Tracey Clement

Metropolis Experiment

A sculptural installation consisting of approximately 20-40 rusty steel structures (40-200cm high each), LOTS of salt crystals, lots of laboratory glass.

It’s the unholy love child of an architectural model and a chemistry experiment: a ruined model city, a metaphor.

Mangala Country

Lydia Balbal is a Mangala woman. She was married to the Yulparija artist Nabiru Bullen until his death in 2009. Lydia’s country is near Punmu in the Great Sandy Desert of W.A. Her people’s existence was threatened by severe drought so that they had little choice but to leave their traditional country. Her family were some of the last to walk out to the coastal town of Bidyadanga (then La Grange Mission) located two hours south of Broome in the early 70s. Lydia first began painting in 2007 but has already received significant attention from collectors and the media alike.

Lydia Balbal is represented by Short Street Gallery, Broome.

Grey Area denotes confusion or a lack of clarity between two mutually exclusive forms, states, categories or rules. Twelve artists respond to this indeterminate space.

Tabi-Tabi Po draws upon personal experiences of Filipino superstitions and voodoo, which then serve as a metaphor for the subsequent sensations of displacement, rejection and acceptance.


A great December line-up that will keep you nourished

SEPTEMBER EXHIBITIONS

Please join us for opening drinks
Saturday 5 September 3.00-5.00pm

 

AirSpace Projects  10 Junction Street   Marrickville   Sydney


GALLERY ONE

Ali Noble Nuha Saad Pink Final

‘Glitter is going under!’ So declared Le Corbusier in his critique of ornament. I like to imagine him emphatically banging a lectern with his fist when he says this, or maybe it’s uttered with a cool and confident voice in a smoky men’s club while sipping whisky. There’s no glitter or gilded edges in our installation; but there is flocking, felt, golden curves and ornament with no formal function.
‘Decadence’, mutters Le Corbusier.


GALLERY TWO

Francesca Mataraga and Merryn J Trevethan

Merryn J TREVETHAN 'seigementality' and Francesca Mataraga 'fence fragment'

Merryn J Trevethan’s work focuses on the uncertainty of perception, using colour to explore the complexity of vision. In this exhibition, Trevethan presents works from her Storm Series of Artist books, objects and recent paintings that distill her daily perceptions and tease out the spatial relationships found in the densely populated architectural environment, as viewed from the 12th storey of her apartment block in Singapore.

Francesca Mataraga presents floor fragment (2015), a sculptural piece and a hypothetical installation. As with other work in this series it explores colour, pattern and form through experimentation with scale, by adapting a pre-existing stripped fabric pattern to an architectural situation.

Sarah Newall: Girl Shed III

Sarahs Work

Girl Shed III is the third iteration and will be the last part to complete the sustainability garden project in the courtyard of AirSpace Projects. Girl Shed is a ramshackle free-form shed designed to provide a creative space and water catchment for the garden. Over the course of the exhibition Sarah Newall will be living onsite creating art that will change and develop the exhibiting space as well as doing daily menial tasks: cleaning, cooking, eating and gardening.
