Join Eunjoo Jang and Stella Chen on Saturday 20 May 3-5pm for more stimulating talks at AirSpace Projects. AirSpace Projects’ Director, Sally Clarke, will also discuss the exhibition of original paintings by Ajay and Vinita Sharma, Review before the Storm, a preliminary exhibition before Ajay Sharma comes out in September for an exhibition of new works and workshops. The four exhibitions offer a broad range of ideas for discussion ranging from the codification of the artist to the interpretation of dreams through modern technologies.  We will delve into questions such as what makes an Indian miniature painting contemporary and how does one come to terms with generational trauma when there are only fragmented memories to work with.

After the talks we will have informal conversations over tea and home-baked cakes. It’s also your chance to catch another moving painting by wax artist Sarah Eddowes, in a most surprising location.

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.


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.

Inspired by a month-long residency at Hill End, contemporary jewellery artist Bridget Kennedy creates a miniature landscape made from wax effigies of real rocks: discarded remnants of the town’s gold mining past. Visitors may decide to ‘mine’ the work, stake a claim and take a piece home.
