Glenn Locklee’s paintings capture his observations of the increasing redundancy of small business and domestic manufacturing; and the proliferation of high-rise, high-density living as house and land ownership become increasingly unattainable.
This Is Where We Meet
Dahl’s photographic installation explores the concept of the island to reflect back upon the contemporary self and the political. The ‘island’ as the notion of the definitive edge, with its hard boundaries and fixed limits. The individual versus the collective. Me and you. Us and them. A metaphor for the nation state. Yet the shoreline is corroding and new islands are born.
Something In The Room
Dwellers of inhabited spaces are often perceived as being the protagonists, or activators, of the spaces in which they live. Something in the Room questions the notion of presence and absence in the context of the home, suggesting that perhaps there are other protagonists activating space without the presence of the dweller.
Catherine Polcz examines the field of plant intelligence to explore the mysterious nature of plants and our relationship to nature; science fact vs science fiction and museums as trusted places that disseminate knowledge.
