Shelter in Place

Artists Eugenia Lim, Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan, Kevin Chin, Mason Kimber, Shannon Lyons and Polly Stanton examine the relationship between humans and architecture and the ways in which the built environment is used to foster ideas of home, shelter and belonging, in this major exhibition of works titled ‘Shelter in Place’. Themes such as materiality and memory, ownership and the ‘Australian Dream’, dispossession and displacement play out across painting, film, sculpture and installation. Three Rooms pictured here ‘confronts the autonomous nature of the abandoned space.’
