GALLERY ONE

When one of my favourite authors, Siri Hustvedt, wrote an essay, My Louise Bourgeois, about one of my favourite artists, I got a little excited. Emotional, even. Louise Bourgeois has become the poster-grrl for many women artists, embodying and transcending the moniker of Confessional Artist. Woman Artist. Confessional Woman Artist. Mother. Difficult Woman. Hustvedt’s essay is the catalyst for My Emotionalism; an exhibition where the primary mutual endeavour of the artists gathered is to translate emotional states. And more.

GALLERY TWO

Susan Andrews

Off-centre

Off-centre in the conventional sense implies that someone or something is not balanced, displaced in space or surface. To reflect some order back into the equation, I chose to work with units of equal measurement but of variable proportion such as the square, rectangle and triangle. By working with these compatible systems of unity, but of varying proportion and scale, I was then able to juxtapose and reconfigure each piece to convey an array of irregular and unfamiliar forms.

THE CRANNY

Metropolis Experiment

A sculptural installation consisting of approximately 20-40 rusty steel structures (40-200cm high each), LOTS of salt crystals, lots of laboratory glass.

It’s the unholy love child of an architectural model and a chemistry experiment: a ruined model city, a metaphor.

Lydia Balbal is a Mangala woman. She was married to the Yulparija artist Nabiru Bullen until his death in 2009. Lydia’s country is near Punmu in the Great Sandy Desert of W.A. Her people’s existence was threatened by severe drought so that they had little choice but to leave their traditional country. Her family were some of the last to walk out to the coastal town of Bidyadanga (then La Grange Mission) located two hours south of Broome in the early 70s. Lydia first began painting in 2007 but has already received significant attention from collectors and the media alike.

Artists Susan Andrews, Allan Giddy, James Nguyen & Yin Lan Soon, Mark Titmarsh and Laura Woodward will be engaging with motion or the idea of motion to reflect on the kinds of change or states of flux experienced in the world today. Their work, which range from paintings to video and sculpture, offer a political, social, cultural, philosophical or environmental response – however abstractly or metaphorically conceived – to the change observed.

The exhibition will conclude with an In Motion projection and performance night. The normally quiet Junction Street of Marrickville will come alive for two hours on Saturday 22 November from 7.30-9.30pm as artists project and perform their work in AirSpace Projects and in neighbouring properties. Event to be opened by Marrickville Mayor, Councillor Mark Gardener, followed by a Fan demonstration by Master Sue Chang of Tai Chi Fitness Australia. See Upcoming Exhibitions for more details.
