Ripples in the Red Sand

24 February - 5 March

An exhibition of contemporary sculpture by Henrietta Norris. “You can experience the arid country of central Australia on many levels.

These are the elements that stay with me, that I…

Solastalgia

3 March - 31 March

Curated by Belle Moody and Evana Tanner. Solastalgia is a desire for home that is experienced whilst at home, or in a place that we love.

All works respond to the artist’s urge to record memories of family,…

Through the window was a picture

7 April - 29 April

1. My mother was strict. We weren’t permitted to play with water, even though it was always raining. We weren’t permitted to waste toilet paper. I was wary of the consequences. 2. The second time, you asked ‘’what are you hiding under there?’’ I said ‘’a jewel’’ You didn’t laugh. In this work by emerging artist Maria Blackwell, images of memory are removed from the wall, and kept inside a plinth. The platform that usually serves to elevate work will…
