DUST

No Vacancy Gallery

The Atrium Federation Square

Dates : October 14– November 3 2013

Dust is a group multimedia exhibition and print exchange exploring the ideas and images that emerge when a selection of printmakers respond to the quote Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life (Bertholdt Auerbach, 1812-82).

 

Helen Kocis Edwards and Ingrid Wilson invited 14 artists to participate in Dust, held at ‘No Vacancy’ Gallery, Federation Square.

The artists are invited to edition one print for exhibition at No Vacancy and are provided with the collection.

In conjunction with the print exhibition, Ingrid Wilson will make a short film featuring the artists in their studios during some part of their printmaking process speaking about the thoughts and processes informing the work.

The prints and film provide a window into each artist’s mind and methods as they explore their own responses intellectually, emotionally and technically.

CATACLYSM

First solo show at Anita Traverso Gallery.

These ethereal works convey a succession of bleak mountainous forms, punctuated with diaphanous layers that shift and fluctuate across the picture plane.
Constructed with undulating scrolls of rice paper encased in perspex, they are at once, compelling in their fragile beauty but also vaguely menacing. This is exactly as the artist intended: deforested and uninhabited, WONG’s scene envisages the ghostly premonition of some future dystopia after a catastrophic environmental disaster.
Satirically entitled Far Away, this series addresses the political and social inertia at play in response to increasing environmental degradation and climate change. WONG implies that the scene depicted belongs to an imperceptible and distant future – simply too far from the present to warrant any real action. – Anna Briers

Exhibition opening Wednesday 27th March at Anita Traverso Gallery until Saturday April 27th.
