Gallery 1
AWKWARD VOLTAS
Alexandra Clapham and Kate Scardifield

AWKWARD VOLTAS presents a series of sculptural and site responsive propositions by Alexandra Clapham and Kate Scardifield. Both artists have distinct and at times opposing practices, yet their concerns around inhabiting space, materiality and the implicitly performative are possible junctures for their work to intersect.

For Clapham and Scardifield the process at first seemed straightforward: conversation would be key and ideas would be teased out by thinking through the making. However inevitable questions soon arose – how do you collaborate when you're not collaborating? When the works become speculative given the context, do you try to play on collective strengths or draw attention to difference?

At the point of encounter, does this then leave the viewer between a proverbial rock and a hard place?
Let's get together and think it over, a slow dance with the familiar can still be awkward at best.

Ni Chicha Ni Limonada (Neither Beer Nor Lemonade)
Claudia Nicholson
This project has been developed through the Firstdraft Studio Residency Program

Ni Chicha Ni Limonada (Neither beer nor lemonade) takes its cue from the Alzate ceramics of Colombia. In 1912 the Alzate family were exposed for having produced fake pre-Columbian ceramic artifacts that were internationally acclaimed.

Nicholson conflates traditional South American and pre-Columbian art making practices with her own in an attempt to insert herself back into Latin American history, calling into question ideas of cultural identity and authenticity. Nicholson’s work creates a transcultural dialogue that merges aesthetics, processes, history and vernaculars.

Ni Chicha Ni Limonada is heavily influenced by the Silletas from the Annual Flower Festival in Medellin. A silleta is a wooden device made to transport and display flower arrangements that are pictorial depictions of Colombian life and culture.

Patterns of Thought
Katie Turnbull
This project has been developed through the Firstdraft Studio Residency Program

Patterns of Thought is a body of work using the imagery of flocks and swarms as visual metaphors for human behaviour and thought processes.

There are three key behavioural elements of flocks and swarms: Separation, Alignment and Cohesion. These behavioural elements present in flocks and swarms, also manifest in social phenomena such as groupthink, bystander effect, crowd behavior and can be explored in relation to the human thought process.

The works act as visualisations of these ideas, using mixed media sculpture, kinetic objects and photography. The kinetic sculptures not only act as representations of these phenomena, but also as tests (in an informal sense) of the user’s behaviour as they can be touched and moved by the hand.
