LIGHTSCAPES / 7 December 2018 to 18 February 2019 at Rodda Lane, Lightwell and Knox Place
For this Lightscapes exhibition, Yuting (Tia) Shen, Zan Griffith, Jessie Stanley and Mengjie Ying present images celebrating and documenting their 2018 MAPS research projects. The graduating students engaged with a range of location based responses to city, urban and regional sites exploring performance in temporary autonomous zones; projection and installation works, geology and deep time; land and earthworks; and the tensions between public and liminal spaces. These projects connect to MAPS key concerns with site, location, performativity, materiality, urbanism, land, politics, democracy and ethics through the exploration of public and social practice, public and social spaces.
