Feast & Famine explores food as a social, political, and bodily phenomenon. The exhibition considers food as a commodity; the relationship between food, death, sex, and the abject; food’s relationship to global economics and geo-politics; food and its likeness as a medium for artistic experimentation; the food chain and the environmental impacts of food production; and food justice. Feast & Famine gathers together works in a variety… 

What was once a backyard swimming pool is now a murky pond with a budding ecosystem. In a corner of the overgrown garden rests a stone roughly hand-engraved with “TIME IS”. The wild cacophony of nature continues inside with native flowers, a pair of preserved emu legs, butterfly wings, piles of rocks, animal skin, feathers and gum nuts scattered across benches, tables and side desks…

In 1974, after a decade of life under military dictatorship, a Brazilian artist named Anna Bella Geiger made a video that runs sixteen minutes, eighteen seconds. It shows her head and upper torso against a white wall. Early on, she’s holding a white cat, bu at some point, it jumps out of frame. Her expression is neutral, maybe a bit tired. Her eyes don’t seduce or challenge the camera. Other artists, her…

A new living artwork featuring bottle trees and natural sandstone has been unveiled in Sydney’s Green Square. The idea behind the artwork is that it will grow with the expanding Green Square community and allow people of all ages to interact with the work. While I Live I Will Grow by Maria Fernanda Cardoso was unveiled at the former Royal South Sydney Hospital site as part of the launch of $32 million Green Square community and cultural…

TWT specialise in establishing quality residential communities with a commitment to art and architecture; they’re also the masterminds behind the TWT Creative Precinct – home to over 70 artists, making it the fastest…

Desde el año pasado, la galería Casas Riegner se ha preguntado por su historia. Con el ciclo de exposiciones TIMELINE, que inauguró en agosto de 2017, han hecho una revisión de los artistas que han pasado por su espacio en una variedad de maneras: mirando etapas específicas de los expositores, conectando obras tempranas con obras actuales o simplemente compartiendo temas que los artistas han trabajado a lo largo del tiempo. El ciclo llega a su fin…

Concluyendo el ciclo expositivo TIMELINE, Apología a lo perecedero pone en escena el trabajo de María Fernanda Cardoso y Danilo Dueñas a fin de explorar las diversas maneras en que ambos artistas enaltecen la materialidad de la obra plástica para otorgarle un carácter poético. En tanto que se abandonan al material perecedero y a su fuerza, Cardoso y Dueñas logran renovarlo, perpetuando su vida transitoria en obras de carácter minimalista…

As a visual artist and visual thinker, I believe in the power of images and objects to communicate concepts. As the old adage goes, ‘an image is worth a thousand words’. But as a sculptor, I also believe in the power of three-dimensional models, not only to create and embody knowledge, but also to trigger high-order thinking [1] in others, (including the maker herself). I want to propose that making things is essential in research and in the production…

When the genome mapping of human sex chromosomes was completed in 2005, mainstream media reports on the findings claimed that the science provided evidence that women were a ‘different species’ to men. Many respondes to the findings  claimed that science provided evidence that women were a ‘different species’ to men. Many responses to the findings interpreted the research in ways that reinforced traditional patriarchal characterisations of ‘irreconcilable’ sexual differences and discounted the possibility of heterogeneity within and between species. This article focuses…
