The Invisible Link is a multi-disciplinary group exhibition at C3 Contemporary Art Space in Abbotsford by the staff at Arts Project Australia, inspired by the Arts Project artists and by the studio space they inhabit.
The twelve Arts Project Australia staff involved with The Invisible Link understands the powerful effect that the Arts Project artists, gallery and studio space have on the staff that work there. The Invisible Link makes it possible to see how each staff member involved in the exhibition has been influenced by their experience at Arts Project, and how in the process of supporting the practice of others, their own practice has grown.
Dr Cheryl Daye says, “Each of the staff involved in this exhibition, by virtue of working at Arts Project demonstrates a tacit belief in originality, authenticity and the power of art to transcend what would otherwise appear to be enormous barriers to shared understanding and revelation”. With this being the commonality that links seemingly disparate works, the result is a refreshingly honest exhibition. Here the connection between the staff involved grows as a result of working alongside each other, not in the process of making their own art, but in a combined effort to assist and support the artistic practice of others.
