Concrete Post 2 is a collaborative who explores the known and felt experience through a sensitive engagement with Concrete Art,
light, colour, time and materiality. Sculptures, paintings, photographs and digital video will be arranged into a composite artwork that unfolds over time and reveals itself through curiosity and observation.

Michael Belmore is a sculptor who works predominantly with copper, a metal indigenous to many parts of North America. Mountains are literally moved in order to satisfy society’s industrial need for this resource, yet this is also a metal that lacks the connotations of preciousness, when compared to gold and silver. As a pure element, copper has been chosen to correlate to the purity of the landscape, yet it is malleable and readily takes an impression, whether from a calculated or an incautious hammer-blow. Belmore uses material and material processes to investigate how our culture views landscape and sees nature as a commodity.

Mass is a transplantation of physical and sonic ambiences delivered via headphone listening and magnifying glass viewing and catalysed by the oppressive heat of the blackened room. The synergy between the components creates a site for examination and an intimate embodied immersion.
This project has been supported by the Bogong Centre for Sound Culture

Lost in Translocation weaves together the work of artists who identify with displacement, migration and diaspora. By uniting and examining the stories that have been formed in the wake of this movement, this exhibition will be used to consider how place affects cultural identity.

The Honours Program is a full year course of study aimed at devising and producing a refined and informed contemporary art practice.
Research in, and through art is an inseparable part of the practice of an artist and consequently these emerging artists have developed diverse and engaging practices through specifically focused knowledge based research strategies.
This exhibition of photographic light box works enables us to see various artistic gestures that through their sensuality and intelligence are ‘of the world’, but as art forms in the very best sense set themselves apart to form something equivalent, critical or reflective of our contemporaneity.
PROJECT SPACE SPARE ROOM / 28th August to 8 October 2015
EVERYTHING AND NOTHING is a large-scale collaborative sculptural work which responds to the writing of 20th century Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges. Borges was preoccupied with allegory often using spatial structures to construct narratives around more abstract ideas and was interested in the question of "whether the writer writes the story, or it writes him”. Through readings, site visits, and perambulations, the four artists have considered these structures and their associated philosophies and developed a spatially engaging and embodied work.

Beginning in Incompleteness: works in formation, involves specific research being undertaken by four PhD Candidates in the disciplines of Interior Design and Landscape Architecture, School of Architecture and Design, RMIT University, Melbourne.
The project will explore notions of autonomy, authorship, collaboration and the intermingling of practice, via the confluence of four individual creative works, which demonstrate responsiveness, openness and reflexivity, tested over the duration of the exhibition. Individual gestures begin to produce an overall collaborative work, subsumed by the other.
