Thinking through the conditions of museums and cultural institutions, Michelle, Jacqui and Tace have been reconsidering Australian history and its presentation through filters of personal heritage and social access.

One cannot appreciate the concept of beauty without experiencing the wonder of decay. We find ourselves seeking out experiences that make us feel human. Intangible representations of death and despair give us a reassurance of the present. We discover a newfound recognition for the value of life. Through deep, sensorial explorations, The Wind Has Shifted merges the practices of artists, Yumemi Hiraki and Hilary Dodd.
Dream Sequence is an exploration of the psyche that finds its expression through the practice of painting. A dream sequence is a well-known storytelling device used in film and television to reveal things about a protagonist’s fears and desires that would normally be hidden.
Luminous Echo is a suite of photo visual works that forms part of a larger series I am developing by experimentation in the studio and dark room. These works employ light as a medium of affect, via destabilised explorations of surface and the phenomenon of retinal flooding. The result is an exploratory series, centered around a shadowy morphology of forms that intimates mutable spaces within the body. The work is based on scientific principles, phenomenological ideas and a semi-autobiographical approach.
This exhibition addresses the relationships between steel manufacturing industries and their mobilisation into a united national front that produced everything from planes to bombs during WWII. The focus here concerns not so much the role steel manufacturing has in WWII narratives, but rather how ideologies of nationalism and cultural belonging are perpetuated through capitalist production associated with times of war.

The chorus milled around the edge of the amphitheatre that stretched out before them, backing out onto an endless sky. A young woman sits staring at the clock, waiting. A forensic photographer bends to take a photo, the scene of the crime rendered with a cool offhandedness. The Book is dropped. Pages stick together, letters melt into sticky amorphous pools...
