‘World Material’ looks at the spaces between strength and delicacy, between the material and the conceptual, between accident and intent, between the real and the fictional, and between representation and abstraction – embodying an exploration, recontextualisation, and sometimes deliberate obfuscation of natural, found and human-made materials.
Curated by Chloé Wolifson, the exhibition includes the work of Australian artists Connie Anthes, Rebecca Gallo, Eloïse Kirk, Michelle Nikou, Lisa Sammut, Lotte Schwerdtfeger, Yasmin Smith and Louise Weaver.
