Creativity and collaboration are at the heart of innovation. Since 2018 the UniSA Business School has partnered with Guildhouse to present works by contemporary South Australian visual artists to encourage reflection and inspire new ideas.

Gentle A Path

Alice Blanch

2 March – 3 July

Gentle A Path is an exhibition of photographic works exploring the humble gestures of the Ngangkiparingka Onkaparinga River. The artwork stems from observing and contemplating the quiet fluidity of the river in its passage over the land; the elements of earth and water are seamlessly balancing and equally compromising to allow for the continuous existence of the other. Through looking to these humble relationships in the land Blanch wonders how we can learn to bring more balance and equality into our human relationships with one another, between different cultures and our relationships with the land itself.

This artwork was created during a 3 month residency at Sauerbier House thanks to the City of Onkaparinga.

To view Gentle A Path, head to the Yungondi Building, UniSA City West Campus.
