Solo Exhibition: On the nature of the Familiar @ Whitebox Gallery

  • Whitebox Gallery QCA (Building G14, Level 1) Parklands Dr Southport, QLD, 4215 Australia (map)

On the nature of the Familiar explores society’s physical and ideological connection to nature within an urban, domestic context. By taking organic and inorganic waste objects from homes,­ and re-presenting them with common household scenes, the work seeks to question where ‘nature’ meaningfully resides. While the natural world is closed off behind doors, curtains and fences, and representations of nature are brought into the home through adornments and motifs, concepts of ‘nature’ are hybridised, abstracted and dislocated from the physical realities of an impacted and disappearing natural environment.
