An exhibition showcasing jewelry and object-based makers who portray physical, imaginative play and movement in their works are on display at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre’s new exhibition “One on One.”
On view through July 29, 2018, the exhibition curator Olivia Poloni says, “The artists in ‘One on One’ take you on a journey, allowing play into the art museum setting. If you allow yourself, you will become immersed in a world of unlimited possibilities, where things are not always what they seem. You will encounter a place with reinterpreted abacuses that compute more than just numbers, a larger than life Monopoly board, Meccano inspired jewelry, and more.”
“One on One” features artists such as Chris Bahng whose works investigate how new forms of jewelry and objects can be created by combining traditional and digital technologies which include the ancient jewelry technique of filigree and 3D printing technologies. Inspired by Abstract Expressionist traditions, Katie Collins works use an approach that is painterly, gestural and intuitive.
Anna Davern works explore the sentimental nature of jewelry and the miniature object. Mark Edgoose’s interest lies in how objects can be physically located in relation to one another within the defined spaces and how this influence perceptions of the work. Designer and maker of sculptural and functional objects Hendrik Forster shows a bold use of geometric forms, beautiful craftsmanship and acute engineering. Wanda Gillespie on the other hand, uses sculpture and photography to explore fiction and ideas around history, culture, ritual and ceremony and Annie Gobel’s contemporary art jewelry revolves around reminiscing childhood times. Commonplace objects are reinterpreted into abstracted forms aiming to draw their hidden and unnoticed qualities in Wendy Korol’s makings and Claire McArdle’s sculptures combine elements of traditional classical sculpture with aesthetic qualities found in Cycladic sculpture and cave art.
This exhibition allows the viewer to explore a physical relationship with the object. In addition, the visitors will be invited at allocated times to interact with works that can be played as instruments, manoeuvred to perform scenes or constructed to make puzzles.
This exhibition is on view through July 29, 2018, at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre, 7 Prospect Hill Drive, Bundoora, Victoria, Australia 3083.
