PERFECTIoNISM (Part I.)

3 July – 30 August 2014

This exhibition does not seek to be perfect.  Neither does it claim to showcase perfect artists.  Instead, this is an exploration of perfectionism of process.  Of artists so committed to their practice that it permeates their every movement and waking thought, manifest in the meticulous detail demonstrated in their work.

Insight Radical

1 – 30 August 2013

This exhibition displays the results of the artists residency in the Free Radical Centre’s science laboratories in Melbourne, Australia. Each artist was asked to respond artistically to the topic of free radicals, thus bringing science and art together. Through this process the artists realised the significant impact of free radicals on the fundamental human processes. Most particularly how free radicals are essential for life, but paradoxically also cause ageing and our inevitable demise. Parallels can also be drawn between artists’ materials such as paints and plastics which require free radicals to polymerise or cure, but are nonetheless degraded by them overtime.
