Feb 12 to 26 Reflections by Erin Katherine Cookson an Australian artist raised in the Sultanate of Brunei on the island of Borneo. The lush rainforest and traditional art practices inspired her love of painting, printmaking and mountainous landscapes. This exhibition explores mountains as a sacred space. In many cultures, mountains are meditative retreats, places of worship and revered as the closest point to the heavens and the stars. Erin’s artwork is a meditation on the mystery and magic of these sacred mountain spaces. Watercolours float underneath a delicate layer of mandala-like patterns creating a cascade of flowing marks along the surface of each mountain side.

Feb 3 to 11 (opening Thurs Feb 2, 5.30-7.30pm) Emerging From and Disappearing Towards Dust by Hannah Bertram. The research investigates the ambiguity of permanence and impermanence using the medium of dust. Through considering the relationship between ephemeral art and documentation, the material and poetic possibilities of dust in relation to time, and the melancholy experience of preservation and loss, the thesis articulates the concept of ‘enduring temporality’. It addresses questions about what we seek to preserve, compared to what we identify as worthless, and the paradox of experiencing life as perpetual, knowing that we return to dust.
Feb 17 to 25 (opening Thurs Feb 16, 5.30-7.30pm) Decomposing Contingencies by Nickk Hertzog. Decomposing Contingencies reconfigures digital materials towards a video installation of meaningful rearrangements. This project investigates how the excess of digital availability offers a means to rearrange, distort, and accelerate the contingencies of digital video to produce new material frameworks for meaning. Original additions and associations continually rework found materials towards spaces of new and ambiguous meanings presented in this installation. Through a range of video images, textures and associations, the exhibition accelerates the ambiguities of digital material and the poetic contingencies of meaning. These exhibitions comprise part of the VCA School of Art 2017 PhD Program.
