Just a reminder that artist talks for our current round of exhibitions will be happening this Saturday at 2pm.

Here's a bit about each of the artists!

Bridie Lunney and Meredith Turnbull: Scale Practice
Scale Practice combines exhibition design, display and objects to form equal and integral parts of one whole, paying particular attention to the body as a tool for intuiting space. The exhibition presents two parallel trajectories within the gallery that use the impact of scale to create a landscape. The installation begins at Craft Victoria’s entrance with wearable objects for the body, and progresses through to large-scale installations at the rear of the space. Scale Practice aims to question predetermined notions of display and the intersections between wearable and sculptural practices.

Timothy McLeod: Stories through the Barrows
Malcolm (Calum) MacLeod B.E.M. was a resourceful, determined and self-made man of the Hebridean Island of Raasay, Scotland. Out of frustration at the local authorities’ neglect of the task, he spent ten years (1964-1974) constructing a road with little more than simple hand tools and a wheelbarrow. Timothy McLeod is a Victorian practitioner with a deep respect and appreciation for wood. The lives of these two men from vastly different times and places will be drawn together in McLeod’s Stories through the Barrows.

Alex Selenitsch: Out of the Box - 94 Variations
Using a stack of found die-cut cardboard sheets, Alex Selenitsch has created a series of ‘unintended’ boxes, containers and objects. The original stack of cardboard was found in the garage of the artist’s deceased father-in-law. This work is a tribute to his father-in-law’s independent, un-conforming personality.

These artist talks are free, so do drop by this Saturday at 2pm!
