living things
5 Apr - 25 May 2014
Galleries 1, 2, Vicki Fayle & Screen

Living Things showcases Melbourne-based artist Christopher L.G. Hill and Brisbane-based artist Matt Dabrowski, whose practices centre on the staging of chance encounters with found materials, evoking a liveliness that can appear free of artistic intentionality. Curated by Wes Hill, the exhibition examines the artists’ idiosyncratic approaches to animating the everyday, and considers how ambiguity can sometimes result from imbuing things with too much rather than too little meaning.

In the Heart (Magellan Street, Lismore): Clare Twomey

15 Dec - 24 Feb 2012
Gallery Upstairs

In the Heart is a celebration of the daily maps created by foot traffic throughout the main streets of Lismore, maps that are marked by the laughter, fear and worry of those who live in or visit the area. The work reflects upon feelings of emptiness and vacancy, concentrating on the vulnerability of the man-made environment once it reaches its use by date, a stage where it is no longer something to be valued and admired.
