Seven Forms (Collie '22)
In this exhibition, seven artists observe layers of meaning attached to sites and artifacts encountered in the Collie region.
Seven Forms offers viewers an altered way of seeing familiar places and things. The artists create work inspired by Collie while bringing to the task their ability to produce material formations that connect industrial culture and the physical world. This is done in ways that resonate with concern at environmental disruption and optimism at opportunity for change.
The exhibition, sponsored by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, includes a series of workshops and artist/curator talks as the means of engagement with the local community.
Curated by Janice Baker, the artists are Monika Lukowska, Layli Rakhsha, Sarah Robinson, Melanie McKee, Alana McVeigh, Susanna Castleden and Sue Starken.
