FELTspace would like to thank committee members past and present for their ongoing support over the years.
Current FELTspace committee:
Carly Snoswell (Chair and Grants)
Carly Snoswell is an emerging South Australian artist who works within the medium of installation and textile art. Her practice considers the link between fandom and the creation of craft objects as an ode to a particular pop-cultural phenomenon through gendered and labourious forms of craft-making. In 2012 she graduated with First Class Honours at the South Australian School of Art, Architecture and Design specialising in sculpture and installation. Since then she has exhibited widely including internationally, most recently at Seventh Gallery, Format Collective, SASA Gallery, FELTspace and the CACSA Project Space. In 2013 she participated in the Helpmann Academy's Sanskriti Kendra residency in India and in 2014 she completed a three-month studio residency at the NARS Foundation in Brooklyn, New York. She is currently completing Masters by Research at the South Australian School of Art Architecture and Design and is Artist Assistant at Carlcew’s Pom Pom.
Serena Wong (Writing Co-ordinator)
Serena is an emerging curator, arts writer and general all-rounder. In 2011 she moved to Adelaide to complete a double Masters in Art History and Curating at The University of Adelaide. Since then she has completed her degree and fallen in love with her adopted city. Currently doing freelance and independent projects, Serena has worked with Prospect Council to produce Prospect-Us a temporary public art project, South Australian Living Artist Festival as project coordinator for SALA on Show, Art Gallery of South Australia as the assistant for the 2014 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Dark Heart and Curator in Residence at Carclew Youth Arts, among other great projects. Serena is particularly interested in audience engagement and her projects focus on facilitating new ways for people to interact with, and enjoy art and what that looks like in the 21st Century.
Lauren Abineri (Volunteer Co-ordinator)
Lauren Abineri is an emerging artist/writer and recent Honours graduate of the South Australian School of Art. Her studio practice reflects on hyper feminine alter-egos, her installations attempt to convey landscapes / spaces where these alter-egos might be expressed. She is particularly interested in the sculptural possibilities of everyday materials, especially materials that are culturally conditioned to be associated with ‘femininity’ and as such, the aesthetic cues of feminist art. She has exhibited at SASA Gallery, UniSA, Format Festival 2014, and was a co-director of temporary gallery/retail space Mr IST.
Jenna Pippett (Design and Website)
Jenna Pippett is an emerging artist whose practice manifests itself in looking into a personal past using family memorabilia, specifically on her mothers side. Responding to items, the work created offers visual links: engaging with a personal history.
Since graduating in 2012 with a Bachelor of Visual Art (Honours), Pippett has had work selected for the Hatched: National Graduate Exhibition at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art. She also exhibited in the 2013 Helpmann Academy Graduate Exhibition, in which she received the City of Adelaide Award.
She has had solo exhibitions at Adelaide City Council’s Art Pod, FELTspace, Constance ARI (TAS) and Seventh Gallery (VIC). She has also exhibited in a number of group shows, including Greenaway Gallery, Adelaide Central Gallery, Abbostford Convent, AEAF:odradek and others.
Fiona Borthwick (Admin & Finance)
Fiona Borthwick is an arts worker and active volunteer within the Adelaide arts community.

Her focus then turned to curation and critical thinking and she went on to complete a Masters in Art History and a Masters in Curatorial and Museum Studies at the University of Adelaide. In December 2014 she undertook an internship at the Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art in Beijing where an interest in how people interact and engage with art and how art translates between cultures evolved.
Since then, Fiona has worked with various museums and arts organisations including the South Australian Museum, the Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia and ACE Open. She is currently a Co-Director at FELTspace ARI and works as an Administration Assistant for SALA Festival.

She is now the Program Coordinator at Vitalstatistix in Port Adelaide – a contemporary arts organisation with a focus on the development of multidisciplinary artworks, which experiment with ideas, forms and engagement. Becci is particularly interested in interdisciplinary and experimental art forms, and engaging with marginalised communities.
