Front gallery: Substructures - Eleanor amor (SA)
Substructures is an examination of temporary environments, whether they be physical or social. Taking influence from Roland Barthes’ ‘A Lover’s Discourse’ and Celine Condorelli’s ‘Support Structures’, this body of work explores construction site materials to depict disconnection, otherness and, more precisely, that which constitutes “support.”
BACK GALLERY: TO ADELAIDE - LUKE ALEKSANDROW (ACT)
Luke Aleksandrow’s practice is concerned with the breakage of ceramic objects and the silence that follows. The breaking of ceramic objects acts as a rhythmic device to contrast the ambient silence of the environment.
The exhibition features a video of the artist breaking over 30 ceramic objects along the way while driving to Adelaide from Canberra. The ceramic objects that are part of this work are Australian-made, situating the breakage of the ceramics within the Australian sound/land scape and its material and cultural context.
FELTDARK - SONARA KRIX - A FRAME TALE OF THE FORGOTTEN #3 (SA)
A Frame Tale of the Forgotten #3 is a video work that explores connections between object and subject, and how they can become immanent to matter. The created space metaphorically elutes to the threshold between life and death. Giving rise to emotional presence felt through absence, allowing for affect to work in a reflective form beyond representation.
