Nostradamus: a January offering

Opening Wednesday 17 January 6-8pm

The past year has delivered a tumultuous series of events that has affected people on a global scale. In uncertain times, there is a tendency to interpret and respond to change, to feel connected and in control once more. Nostradamus: a January offering will explore notions and practices of ritual as a way of connecting with a new understanding of ‘the future’. How do rituals, objects of power and faith allow us to gain new perspectives of a fragmented present?

Opening at the start of a new year, the exhibition then, is itself a ritual, an attempt at forecasting and influencing the course of 2018. The show wishes to consider the exhibition format itself as ritual, and would like to exaggerate these aspects of exhibition-making and artistic practice. Nostradamus: a January offering brings together the work of six emerging artists that offer a range of alternative futures, different attitudes towards the future and ways ahead, or simply offer instruction as to how to make do in our current time.

GALLERY TWO

Emerging artists Belle Blau, Paula McCambridge and Cameron Stead present new works with curatorial assistance provided by Upasana Papadopoulos. FLEX  explores, challenges and disrupts the power structures that frame their personal, professional and political lives through use of various mediums including painting, installation and digital media.

THE CRANNY

Pamela Leung

Pamela Leung’s works often draw on the migratory experience with relationships, connections, displacement and diaspora being the dominant themes. She uses red or white in her works to refer to cultural, spiritual and traditional memories as well as meditation, Zen, emotion and the ordinariness of everyday life. She frequently brings together found materials or everyday objects to create symbolic sculptures or installations. Through the process of mark making, her drawings are careful compositions of lines that strongly suggest meditations on the everyday.

DEEP SPACE

Indeterminate Structures

“What is unknown can only be imagined”

The intervention into the Deep Space consists of a complex system. Created out of many small parts, the building of the whole is considered from the point of view of the whole rather than the single parts. Arising from the unplanned assembling, transitory structures of an indeterminate nature, are created with an emphasis on modes of organisation and interrelated arrangements. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, further possibilities will be explored in reorganising the structures, shifting, disseminating and altering the shapes and re-arranging them into new formations with ongoing consideration of the space they are situated in.

Opening Event: Friday 3 November 6-8pm

GALLERY ONE

Susan Buret
Mainly Martha

The idea of house and home for ourselves, and for the work we make, has occupied artists since Miriam Shapiro and Judy Chicago’s ground breaking exhibition Woman House in Los Angeles in 1972.

Working somewhere between art, life and decoration across painting, textiles and installation this body of works mediates my tangle of ideas and memories of house, home and agency in domestic space and its relationship to my experiences when installing exhibitions. Placing the work in the gallery space to suggest a domestic interior I hope to implicate the viewer and their own immediate context in my work. As it teeters on the edge of prettiness, with tongue in cheek, I have named the exhibition after the fallen happy homemaker Martha Stewart. In this body of work, I seek to interrogate my place as an aging female artist/compulsive decorator.

GALLERY TWO AND THE CRANNY

Place of all return
T-E-A-R Collective

Artists: Ben Adams, Carlos Agamaz Garcia, Chi Chi Menendez, Clara Chung, Danny Giles, Erin Schloeffel, Gabbi Lancaster, Giorgia De Biasi, Karolina Partyka, Marlaina Read, Michael Lai, Mija Healey, Moonhee Kim, Paula S Y Ngu, Patrick Smith, Rosanna Goslett-King

Facilitated by Hayden Fowler

A new group exhibition by T-E-A-R Collective at AirSpace Projects invites audiences to consider the environment of Smith’s Lake through the collaborative works of sixteen emerging and early career multidisciplinary artists.

Place of all return is the collective’s first exhibition, and examines the shifting contemporary relationship between humanity and the natural world, and historical and cultural influences shaping his engagement. The collective came together following an intensive experimental contemporary art lab and residency at Smith’s Lake on the NSW mid-north coast, facilitated by artist Hayden Fowler.

Corpus: Part 3

If you have never taken the time to consider how odd our relationships are with our bodies, the final phase of this unconventional display of body-oriented artifacts will facilitate your thoughts.

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.
