1 May - 4 July
Curated by Adele Sliuzas
This exhibition showcases three Australian artists who investigate haptic qualities of objects within their practice. Through working with handmade and hand formed objects and through the process of questioning form and function, their work connects to the practice of craft. Featuring Kate Beckingham (Sydney), Tom Borgas (Adelaide), and Meredith Turnbull (Melbourne), the exhibition looks at the affective qualities of objects, and the way in which (craft) objects have an intimate relation to the hand, to touch, gesture and feeling.
