Exhibition Dates: Friday, 16 May 2014 – Sunday, 22 June 2014

 

Artists:

Jessie Bullivant – Both at once

Melbourne based artist Jessie Bullivant will step beyond the gallery walls and occupy Linden’s front garden. As a gesture, the work will seek to transplant the two Norfolk Island pines that sit near the entrance to the gallery.

 

littlewhitehead (UK), curated by David Hagger – INNER REFUGE

Scottish born artists littlewhitehead met as children of the 80′s and were brought up on a diet of videos and computer games in the post-industrial landscape of Glasgow. Curated by David Hagger of Blackartprojects, their sculptural work will incorporate the dark humour they are famous for, occupying the gallery space in a site specific installation.

 

Nicholas Ives, James Bonnici and Amelie Scalercio – Through a Hole in the Sky

Three Melbourne based artists come together to present an exhibition that invokes a sense of rupture or departing from the known, the real and the logical as subjects split, melt and morph. Their figurative paintings inhabit an in-between world and challenge representations of the self.

 

Britt Salt – Light Transit

Melbourne artist, Britt Salt, will create one vast suspended sculpture that stretches out into the gallery. Constructed by origami like folds – it will reveal spaces between the layers for the viewer to walk within and reconsider the spaces we occupy.

 

Jasmine Targett – Blind Spot

Melbourne based Jasmine Targett’s interdisciplinary practice investigates perception and nature. This perspex work creates a scientific map of the Ozone hole. Invisible to the human eye but a reminder of how far we push the environment around us, it shows how our actions are often without visible consequences.
