Remanence

 

This exhibition examines how fire shapes landscape and impacts on the psyche of people whose homelands are affected by fire. It draws together Tasmanian artists working across a range of mediums including interactive video, jewellery, architectural performance, sculpture and furniture.

The artists envisage fire as a destructive force and ever-present threat, as well as a mechanism of renewal and a sculpting force across the island. Engagements include Gay Hawkes’ documentation of loss to fire, Philip Blacklow’s thermally modified furniture and Neil Haddon’s vibrant paintings. Art-science works by Peter Davies, Joe Shrimpton and Bill Hart explore environmental cycles and chance events.

“You think … well, it couldn’t have happened. That place down there, that place I loved, it must be still there.”  – Gay Hawkes.

 

Curators: Noel Frankham, Kit Wise, Svenja Kratz and Zoe Veness

Artists: Philip Blacklow, Lucy Bleach, Dorita Hannah & Sean Coyle, Neil Haddon, Jan Hogan, Joe Shrimpton & Bill Hart, Gay Hawkes, Zoe Veness, Martin Walch, Peter Davies, Lynn Davies & Rachael Rose and Rob Long

 

Presented by University of Tasmania (Tasmanian College of the Arts)
