Invisible Bridge brings together four artists, with overlapping investigatory concerns, working in the area of object-based sculpture.
Within their sculptural practices the artists hold individual and collective interest in the transformative, evocative and psychological implications of material investigation. For the context of this exhibition the artists investigate these interests with the intention of materially interrogating the notion of “the bridge” by expanding identified overlapping objectives and qualities in their practices – intimacy, memory, temporality and tactility. Additionally, the works investigate ideas regarding human/material agency within the processes of formalisation, and how constructed material conditions can facilitate a sense of flux and in-betweenness.
