SPARE ROOM / 25 August to 28 September 2017 (Opening Thursday 24 August 5-7pm, Artist Talk Friday 25 August 1.30-2.15pm)
Precisely is a tribute to Sue Lorraine’s late father, architect and artist Hans Lorraine. Bringing together the artists’ interest in scientific research, representation and personal memories of her father, the works reflect on the qualities of ingenuity, resourcefulness and invention. By drawing on mathematical, engineering and architectural sources, the objects in the exhibition pay homage to the modest and precise life Lorraine’s father. The works are both insightful and inventive, lovingly and precisely crafted as a celebration of a creative life.
Precisely is a part of the 2017 Radiant Pavilion program, alongside Minegishi / Britton / Bielander at PROJECT SPACE and The Grid Reimagined at SITE EIGHT. All three exhibitions to be opened at PROJECT SPACE SPARE ROOM by Professor Paul Gough at 5.30pm.

Lorraine’s work has been shown nationally and internationally, and is held in all major state collections in Australia.
