MIKALA DWYER RESPONSE WORKSHOP: SEPTEMBER 21

MIKALA DWYER RESPONSE WORKSHOP: SEPTEMBER 21

0.00

Experiment with everyday materials to transform them into hanging objects and jewellery, inspired by Mikala Dwyer's exhibition Earthcraft.

With jewellers Sam Kelly and Jennifer Laracy explore material, colour and contour.

Meet at the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery for a talk, before the workshop at The Jewel and the Jeweller.

Please bring materials you would like to work with, such as metals, plastics and clay objects.

Commissioned for the grand space of the Gallery’s lower ramp, Mikala Dwyer’s sculptural installation greets visitors on their entrance into the building. Dwyer – one of Australia’s most acclaimed contemporary artists – is known for her installations that explore notions of time and space, creating strange scenarios that play in the spaces between reality and fiction.
With Earthcraft, Dwyer stages a series of encounters that challenge us to explore our own understanding and experience of sculpture. A series of seamless geometric objects fabricated in mirrored stainless steel are contrasted with more eccentric forms made from fabric, ready-mades and transparent plastic. The row of objects and shapes runs the length of the ramp, hanging like pendulums from the ceiling. We are invited to wander around the sculptures as they slowly move in space, sometimes obstructing or distorting and reflecting the interior architecture, as well as other objects and ourselves.
