      Spirit Phones
      Hugh Davies

      Spirit Phones are electronic devices created for speaking with the dead. They open up an electronic link between the world of the living and that of the deceased. Drawing on one-hundred years of Electronic Voice Phenomenon research as well as the early necrophone prototypes developed by Thomas Edison, Spirit Phones is a collection of functional prototypes for communication beyond the grave that visitors are invited to test for themselves.

      “What the hell is with Stonehenge?”

      For this exhibition, Dettmer presents a new collection of oil paintings that translate a flux of dissociated images into his own distinctive language of flat realism. Here, a textural focus on surface and shade flesh out flat surfaces with a sculptural sense of softness and weight, creating figures of intense and specified interest by abstracting everyday scenes from their broader contexts. Inexplicably varied in subject matter, Dettmer’s disparate images obliquely reference the rich visual history of our global past.

      Second Sight
      Sarah Walker

      Second Sight is an exhibition that examines the human relationship with spirituality, religion, ritual, and faith. Positioning a cynical look at our collective need for meaning, the work examines the idea that seeing is believing, and uses the trickery of photography to hijack the everyday in order to capture the ephemeral.

      By definition, an altar is an elevated place or structure, a mound or platform where rites are performed or on which sacrifices are offered. Affecting the atmospheric qualities of environment through a specific demarcation of space, either publicly in a place of worship or devotion, or in the personal domestic space of a home, an altar establishes an intent to communicate - to commune.

      Hesperia: Land looking West

      Hesperia: Land looking west brings together a series of artworks by Matthew McAlpine, that examine the colonial legacy of Western Australia’s first Governor, James Stirling, the man initially responsible for invading Nyoongar boodja (country). Through an interdisciplinary arts practice, the work aims to critique the celebration of his legacy; which contributes to the ongoing concealment of Indigenous experiences and versions of history.
