A CONTEMPLATION OF WONDER
Amy Hurley is a cross-disciplinary artist who, through intimate installations, explores our existential anxieties—the constant evolution of time, and the many complexities of the universe we will never understand. Combining basic natural elements with sculpture, sound and touch, Hurley creates a space for primary interaction and interpretation, testing viewers’ personal relationships to nature and culture. Hurley attempts to confront the concepts that make us feel small but at the same time appreciating the largeness of the life.
‘We try to connect. We try to find truth. We dream and we hope. And underneath all of these strivings, we are haunted by the suspicion that what we see and understand of the world is only a tiny piece of the whole.’
– Alan Lightman, The Accidental Universe: The World You Thought You Knew (New York City, NY: Pantheon Books, 2013)
This exhibition was awarded to Hurley as part of c3’s Graduate Prize with Monash University.
