Roy Ananda is a South Australian artist, writer and educator whose objects, drawings, installations, and videos variously celebrate pop-culture, play, process and the very act of making. Most recently, Ananda presented a major new work in Divided Worlds, the 2018 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art at the Art Gallery of South Australia, inspired by his lifelong passion for the fantasy role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons.
Matthew Bradley's sculptural and performative works are the result of an experimental and original approach to thinking and making. Qualities of art relevant to his practice include those that are akin to the work of the cosmologist, the physicist and the engineer. He is known for a restrained and methodical approach to materials and form, and philosophically robust engagements with notions as diverse as risk, delinquency, the evolution of conciousness, the origins of the universe and the fatal attraction of the horizon. His practice explores the complicated relationship of these notions to the intellectual advancement of society and the psychic renewal of the individual citizen.

Haselton’s sculptural artwork has recently been exhibited in "Do It Adelaide" at the Samstag Museum of Art, Adelaide, "Magic Object : Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art", at The Art Gallery of SA and "Fabrik" at the Ian Potter Museum and Sutton Gallery Project Space, Melbourne.
