GALLERY ONE

Catherine Rogers

Details from the world: from heaven to earth: Part 3

Details from the world – between heaven and earth Part 3 by Catherine Rogers, is a continuation from the Part 2 exhibition at AIRspace Projects in March. The exhibition is a reflection on photography and its history. It is an exhibition about the photographic image and its relationship to the world it seeks to picture. The images all come from Rogers’ archive of 40+ years—photographs that gaze at a distant horizon, images new and old, made and re-made, boundless and silent.

THE CRANNY

Helen Amanatiades

The Fates

This exhibition resurrects the three fates that spun, measured and cut the thread of life – Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos. These mythological beings in human form are spinsters, spinning string, weaving tales and determining human destiny. Through spinning, weaving and measuring string, the Fates tell the tale of both human triumph and tragedy.

‘No one can help me now.’

Mary sat by the rock trying not to think, swept up in the light and earth and wind, she carried on, staring at time moving, spacelessness and timelessness.

The gap wherein she sat, not doing, not washing, not eating, not cleaning, not working, not scrolling or talking, nor being busy.

Rustle, a thin line, a curved shape, the building of an imaginary moment, not real, working in order not to work; beauty, structure, scaffold, light, colour.

These paintings were made in Summer 2018 in a place a long distance from the city. They are regarded as preliminary works, experimental, and act as sketches (like photographs) for other ideas. They’ve not been shown before.

Human/Nature Continues

Curated by Catherine Polcz

Human/Nature is a museum show that examines the relationship between humans and the urban ecology in Sydney’s Inner West through the collection of objects. An aesthetic journey through artificial grass, scare owls, root-clogged pipes and the hundreds of weeds, Human/Nature uncovers the biology, history and design of plants, animals and products while unveiling the everyday harmony and warfare on our streets.

Human/Nature is the first show at AIRseum, a new museum space exploring everyday design and secret stories of the Inner West. AIRseum is part of AIRspace projects and curated by Catherine Polcz.

November Exhibitions

3-18 November 2017

Opening Event: Friday 3 November 6-8pm

Artist Talks: Saturday 18 November 3-5pm

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.

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.

The August exhibitions have now concluded and we are now preparing the galleries for the installation of the September exhibitions

1-16 September 2017

Opening: Friday 1 September, 6-8pm

Talks: Saturday 16 September, 3-5pm

GALLERY ONE

Red Herring II: Construct

Anthony Cahill and Pollyxenia Joannou

This collaboration explores what Cahill and Joannou surmised to be the similarities of each other’s work when exhibited side by side having been sight unseen by the other. It was decided that a theme could be used to give connection, a starting point for the exhibition. This connection was to be based on the subject of ‘construct’ (a complex image or idea constructed, piled or put together).
 
Joannou and Cahill settled on a format, proceeded to their studios and over the past 12 months, have produced this body of work.

GALLERY TWO AND THE CRANNY

Wood Is Part Of Life

Ajay Sharma

Master miniature painter Ajay Sharma and partner Vinita Sharma, will be presenting new paintings and works in the tradition of Indian miniature painting from their studio in Jaipur. Ajay Sharma’s series, Wood Is Part Of Life, is about the cycle of life. It is a reflection on how trees are part of this cycle and how wood accompanies us from birth to death.

Ajay Sharma’s exhibition will be accompanied by two 5-day miniature painting workshops. There are still places left in Workshop 2 from 11-15 September. Go to SquarePeg Studios for more information and bookings.

Corpus: a guide to the human body

Catherine Polcz, artist, scientist and museologist, this year presents Corpus: a guide to the human body, a pop-up museum that explores the body, medicine and materiality through the display of historical artifacts, scientific tools and art. This will be an expanding project at AirSpace projects over a three-month period, from September to November.

This exhibition will examine the body as a concept that merges science, pseudoscience, design and art. The simultaneous exploration of these themes allows us to creatively consider our relationship to our bodies throughout history and in different disciplines with distinct theoretical frameworks. The exhibition presents a multifaceted concept of the human body through the display of sixty unique objects.

Catherine Polcz is an artist, scientist and museologist. She holds a Bachelors of Science in Environmental Science and Biology and a Masters in Plant Science and has studied documentary media and photography at universities and artist-run centres in Canada. She creates interdisciplinary projects that inspire critical thinking about science. Her recent project, Herba Morbus: Museum of Plant Intelligence, was a researched and playful exhibition about historical and contemporary ideas around plant sentience and behaviour. In addition to curating her own museum exhibitions, Catherine is a curatorial researcher with the unconventional and critically renown design centre, Mmuseumm, in New York.
