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.

ARTIST TALKS

Saturday 20 August 2pm

The final day of the August exhibitions

10 Junction Street Marrickville

August2016FB
Join artists Anie Nheu, Sarah Mufford, Sally Clarke, Brenda Factor and Sara Sohrabian for art talks that delve into topics ranging from the psychology of the displaced body to tessellation and the geometric ratio of 2:1:2:1:2; from inscribed skins and unintended consequences to the formation of dual identity.

The talks will be followed by relaxed conversation over tea and baking concepts presented on TableSpace downstairs, a normally dull space that transforms into a gustatory spectacle on the third Saturday of every month. Why not demonstrate your prowess in the kitchen and participate in this highly coveted exhibition opportunity? We can only encourage you!

August Exhibitions

Friday 5 – Saturday 20 August

Opening Event: Friday 5 August 6-8pm

Gallery One

Anie Nheu

Forms on Edge

Double edged_2016_mixed media on design board_56.5x17cm copy

One of the ideas that sustains Anie Nheu’s visual exploration is the relationship the body forms to the space it inhabits. ‘Relationship’ encapsulates the experiences of a body in a myriad of affect and effects, both tangible and intangible. The background narrative is told through a female body of a perpetual migrant who was born into a predominately patriarchal culture. Resettlement and adaptation brought changes in traditionally assigned roles. Negotiations for place and roles in new communities and at a micro level within the family were acutely felt. These ideas form the basis of the visual framework for the exhibition.

Gallery Two

Sarah Mufford

Repeat

Catalunya Diagonal detail copy

Sarah Mufford’s practice explores intuitive, abstract expressionistic technique juxtaposed with mathematical patterning of circular, sacred geometry derived from Eastern and Western methodologies. It is an acknowledgment of the history of abstraction and uses ritual as both process and philosophical driving force.

Overlapping, repeated circle tessellations form grids emphasising spatial relationships within the composition. The resulting four segmented star-like shapes painted in opaque white and transparent rose reference the mathematical process that Giotto and his Bottega employed in decorative sections such as fabric drapery and also in the manner with which he devised the gold star ceiling of the Scrovegni chapel in Padua, Italy. This geometric ratio is 2:1:2:1:2, or “One Between Two”.

It is also found in traditional Indian Miniature painting and used as a ritualistic mantra and methodology in the depiction of any kind of organisational, decorative pattern from leaf and flower shapes, to fabric, brickwork, carpet and flooring. In Repeat Mufford uses this method of sacred geometry to organise the pattern of tiny plant references, gold leaf work and grid.

The Cranny

Sally Clarke and Brenda Factor

Beast People

SiliconSkinBFAP800

Inspired by Dr Moreau’s experimental lab, Clarke and Factor combine, by way of a metaphorical vivisection, their practices and materials to create a hybrid installation of materials and ideas. Clarke literally references the scientist’s laboratory with a suggestion of unintended consequences while Factor produces skins impregnated with medieval imagery of fantastical creatures.

Sara Sohrabian

Rapture/Rupture

Web image, Rupture-Rapture #5

Rupture/Rapture addresses the inevitability of change while acknowledging the strong hold that memory can hold over the present. For migrants, who have lost a direct connection to their culture and to the ties of their past, identity shifts between a duality. While embracing the many aspects of a new culture, a feeling of isolation, division and dislocation can ensue. Rupture/Rapture explores these complex feelings.
