signs & wonders & other omens

8 April – 9 May

I walk along the footpath, holding a small shand. Its owner has pockets filled with rocks, leaves, feathers and dirt. When we get home these objects will be grouped, wrapped, hidden in drawers, stacked awkwardly next to bobby pins, buttons and broken things, and generally acquire any unclaimed real estate in our small urban apartment. Some of them will inadvertantly go through the washing machine. Clink. Clink. Clink.

For as long as I can remember these small hands have been collectors. When I cast them, I find the resemblance to my own hands with their long, slender, collecting fingers is uncanny (and perhaps a little unearthly).

Artists participating in this exhibition are Aleksandra Antić, John Foubister, Elizabeth Hetzel, Heidi Kenyon, Olga Sankey and Regine Schwarzer.

Catherine Truman, Shared Reckonings

24 February – 2 May

A mesmerising new collection of glowing, botanically-inspired art is on display at the Museum of Economic Botany and the Deadhouse within Adelaide Botanic Garden.

In Shared Reckonings, renowned South Australian artist, Catherine Truman, explores the impact of light on human vision and the growth of plants.

The exhibition combines thermoplastics and photo-luminescent powders with exquisite, thought-provoking results.

Truman’s work, which is presented as part of the Adelaide Festival, was created following two concurrent residencies at the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium, and the Flinders Centre for Ophthalmology at Flinders University.

It was influenced by powerful themes: the catastrophic bushfires that swept the country last summer, climate change-induced biodiversity loss, and the global pandemic.

You will not want to miss this enchanting and thought-provoking exhibition.

Taiwan Ceramics Biennale 2020

20 November, 2020 – 9 May, 2021

Gus Clutterbuck’s porcelain installation work, “Master of the Rocks 1 & 3 is a finalist in the Taiwan Ceramics Biennale 2020 exhibition and international competition, and will be presented at the New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum, Taiwan.

This major international exhibition will be showcased from Nov 20th 2020 – May 9th 2021, and features the works of 100 selected artists from around the world. Gus is one of only two Australians selected for the final exhibition and his work, “Master of the Rocks 1 & 3” is now part of the Yingge Ceramics Museum collection.

This large scale porcelain installation is a culmination of his research and passion for Chinese painting, with the aim of creating porcelain in an expanded field.

Gus says,

“The spirit of my work is in a romantic tradition inspired by Chinese symbolism and based on a historic early Qing dynasty porcelain, “Dish with a painted Landscape”, held in the collection of the Keramiekmuseum Princesshoff, Netherlands.”

A printed image of this work forms a background with decorated sculptural forms that overlay and reinterpret this work. Master of the Rocks was originally shown as part of his solo exhibition “Falling”, at MEOU Art Museum, Shanghai in November 2018.

The Opening Ceremony for TCB 2020 has been cancelled and travel not possible due to the Pandemic but works from the exhibition and short videos will be shared here: https://public.ceramics.ntpc.gov.tw/en/index.html#firstPage

The Exhibition Brochure can be viewed here: https://public.ceramics.ntpc.gov.tw/pdf/展覽摺頁.pdf

Gus is opening up his home studio to visitors as part of the Australian Ceramics Open Studios Weekend 2020.

Come and visit the Back Deck studio, DIY, makeshift, quirky and chaotic with an interesting collection of works from China, sculptural surprises and current commissions.

It’s Complicated

February – November

Dynamic Interconnectedness. It’s complicated.

Actually, it’s complex.

Problems in complex systems are trickier to solve. Even well-thought out solutions can have unexpected and unintended consequences. Like trying to wipe out malaria but ending up with parachuting cats.

Join us to raise a Tamagotchi-inspired octopus, build robots and hack the immune system. IT’S COMPLICATED pulls back the curtain on the seemingly simple and reveals just how complicated, and complex, the world can be.

Wendy Dixon-Whiley, Macrocosm

24 March – 28 April

Wendy Dixon-Whiley will be drawing on the gallery walls at the launch. This is a one off live drawing event.

The work shown in this exhibition is the result of a process of reflexive practice. An unplanned ‘pictorial script’, the work is always a product of the time, place and context in which it was created. As I work within the space as I make the work, forms change and evolve in response to my mood. Depending on where I stand as I work, some elements of the mark making become less important and others re-assert their presence, they morph in to one another and highlight new perspectives. They fill and overwhelm the space with their presence. In accessing an internal ‘visual universe’ as I make the work, I am engaging in a form of imaginative play; a type of ’stream of consciousness’ painting. In doing this I aim to take the viewer on a journey of making their own associations as I break down the barriers between my own internal and external worlds.

In the use of black lights in the space, the line work is taken one step further and becomes an expression of a void, making the negative white space a work of its own. This provides the viewer with the opportunity to encounter how the drawings change and disappear from view depending on the lighting and their position.

Sam Gold

19 March – 13 April

Sam Gold produces ceramic installations that explore the body’s faculty for Poiesis in order to embed meaning and its capacity to reconcile with material to achieve catharsis. This process oriented work is held together by the indexical trace of gesture; the repetitious mark making which is embedded within the clay. Gold’s body is a tool, the clay becomes a site to document time and experiential narratives of what we birth, rise and resolve within.

Gold speaks of the ‘storiness’ of our lived materiality, the artefacts we imbue with meaning, with loves and losses, with hopes and desperations. The conferring of emotion, tales of times lived into the material, and investigating an essentially human and revealing act.

Rethinking Australian Art

ongoing

Highlighting the complex changes that occured in Australian art after the second world war.

This series of displays highlights the complex and radical changes that occurred in Australian art after the Second World War, including the revelation of Aboriginal art, the Feminist art movement and the rise of conceptual art and post modernism.

This rehang challenges preconceptions of art in Australia as being isolated or singular. To borrow the words of art historian Ian McLean, the re-presentation of the collection ‘examine the place of Australia in the world and the world in Australia’.

Pop Mart

26 February – 26 April

An evocation of an ordinary supermarket, Pop Mart presents verisimilitude works by artists working in cardboard, ceramics, glass and yarn. While considering the mimetic qualities of craft-based media, the artists in this exhibition play with multiples and scale, irony and nostalgia and the intersection of luxury and essential. These familiar yet subversive objects provide a commentary on our consumer world, still haunted by a global pandemic.

Ruby Chew and Ida Sophia, The Painter and The Performance Artist

April 7 – May 14

Open studio/making period:
April 7 – 30
Exhibition continues:
May 2 – 14
Finissage event:
Friday May 7, 5:30–8pm

‘What happens when a Painter (Ruby Chew) and a Performance Artist (Ida Sophia) assemble for a period of 4 weeks to make work based on the methodologies, materials and processes of the other’s?’

Ruby and Ida invite audiences into the gallery to watch as their work develops over the first four weeks of the exhibition. Working within a process driven structure outlined in a joint manifesto, both artists will be bringing their own understanding of artistic practice, and a willingness to extend into new zones. While present in the gallery over the first period of the exhibition, the artists will be responding to weekly provocations traded in sealed envelopes. The final two weeks will remain as a static exhibition for audiences to view the work produced during the first period.

Artist Statement
Our objective is to subvert the normal system of an exhibition; how it is prepared, presented and received. Through this we will develop new theoretical underpinnings for our practices, birthed through process. The process is the exhibition.

We will respond to the materials, methods and processes from each other, and build from the foundation of our own practices. Envelopes containing instructions, provocations, methodological considerations and processes will be traded between us weekly. These directives will dictate the work that we make. We anticipate an exchange that is challenging and fruitful, producing work that pushes the edges of our practices into fresh territory.

Adherence to a co-written manifesto, written specifically for this system intervention, provides us with artistic constrictions, intentions and declarations. This includes a list of materials; 5 from Ruby’s practice, 5 from Ida’s and each a meaningful object to work from.

Clarice Beckett: The present moment

27 February – 16 May

During the 1920s and 1930s Clarice Beckett surrendered to the sensory impressions of her everyday world with such intensity that the force of her painted observations created an entirely new visual language. The extreme economy of her painting tested her Australian audiences, and yet distinguished her as working at the avant-garde of international modernism. Drawn from national public and private collections, highlights include the artist’s famed ethereal images of commonplace motifs such as lone figures, waves, trams and cars.

Driven by spiritual impulses beyond worldly success, she was a visionary mystic that saw nature as all powerful. Through veils of natural light she captured the eternal in the temporal. Accordingly, the 130 paintings in The present moment will be thematically displayed around shifts in time that chart the chronology of one single day. The exhibition will take visitors on a sensory journey from the first breath of sunrise, through to the hush of sunset and finally a return into the enveloping mists of nightfall.

The Art Gallery of South Australia is renowned for collecting, displaying and publishing the work of modern Australian women artists. Clarice Beckett: The present moment showcases Alastair Hunter OAM’s recent support of the acquisition of 21 Clarice Beckett paintings and proudly announces the AGSA’s ongoing commitment to the promotion and celebration of the work of great Australian women artists.

Taking its title from Olafur Eliasson’s Dark matter collective, this display brings together artists who often use elemental material such as air, light, fire and stone, or mirrors, lenses and prisms to explore the mechanics of vision, concepts of infinity and the outer edges of perception.

Online recording of Megan Cope’s work ‘Untitled (Death Song)’

When Rio Tinto blew up the 46,000-year-old Juukan Gorge rock shelters in the Pilbara in May, the traditional owners of the land, the Puutu Kunti Kurrama people, told the ABC they were in mourning.

They were “deeply troubled and saddened” by the mining megacorp’s act of destroying this place of significance, severing a millennia-long tether to the land and their past.

 

Megan Cope’s work ‘Untitled (Death Song)’ captures this pain – but also extends beyond it.

“People say ‘Wow, it’s like you predicted Rio Tinto,’” Megan tells CityMag, “but colonialism is predictable. It’s predictable because it’s violent.”

The Quandamooka woman and artist responded to the 2020 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art Monster Theatres theme with ‘Untitled (Death Song)’, a piece that is an extension of a previous work, ‘Old Kahibah’, but with a new twist.

Watch live-performances at the Tate in London

Congolese choreographer and dancer Faustin Linyekula had already travelled to London when his show at Tate Modern was cancelled due to coronavirus. He made the most of it though, and filmed his performance in the moody, empty mid-century industrial gallery with fellow performers who had also made it to London for the show. Each of the Tate’s four galleries (the Britain and Modern in London, Tate Liverpool and Tate St Ives) also displays works online, and there’s a series of videos, podcasts and online classes to keep you going between visits.

Melbourne Design Week

26 March – 5 April

In 2021, Melbourne Design Week explores the theme ‘design the world you want’ where designers demonstrate how they can collaborate to create a better and healthier future for the planet.

Over eleven days, Melbourne Design Week presents emerging and established designers to address the theme in an array of talks, tours, workshops, exhibitions and launches across Melbourne and Victoria. Through this, it celebrates the diversity of the Australian design and architectural sector offering both industry professionals and design enthusiasts the opportunity to engage with individuals, institutions and practices at the vanguard of design world-wide.

Melbourne Design Week is ideas-driven. Inspired by the theme ‘design the world you want’, designers respond to this provocation through three pillars: Care, Community and Climate. Events under the Care thematic reflect the desire for design processes that consider the emotional needs of others, including other species; Community celebrates collaboration across disciplines, disseminating knowledge and embracing new cultures; and Climate examines the ways in which designers can mediate the effects of climate change, including the necessary shift to a zero-carbon future.

The design festival is complimented by specially curated programs: Melbourne Art Book Fair, Melbourne Design Week Film Festival and Waterfront. The extensive Waterfront program, presented by Centre for Architecture Victoria | Open House Melbourne, extends to Lakes Entrance and Lake Tyers in 2021 with the School for unTourists. Exploring the future for this post-fishing community, audiences will be introduced to sites around the lakes district through a series of walks, tours, talks, kayak and boat trips; and hear about the issues affecting the waterways of the Gippsland Lakes from the perspectives of Traditional Owners, local community members, designers, artists and marine experts.

An initiative of the Victorian Government and delivered by the National Gallery of Victoria, the inaugural Melbourne Design Week was launched in 2017. Since 2017 the program has grown in scope and scale from just under 100 programs in 2017 to over 300 in 2020 making it Australia’s largest international design event.
