Radicle - part of Dialogues with Landscape

The paraphernalia of a rootless existence, such as sleeping bags and tents, are rolled to form soft-sculptural planters. These incubating seedbeds support the growth of 100 plants native to Western Australia. Each vessel is fitted with a tag identifying the scientific and common name. Another tag references a UWA-related research publication title drawn from any faculty and collectively forming a temporary nursery and library annex that reflects a rapidly changing environment and associated fields of knowledge.

Mise en Abyme

TARA GILBEE
Mise en Abyme

Gilbee’s oeuvre entails a complex exploration of human existence that often borders on the ineffable. The ethereal and somewhat ephemeral nature of her materials complements this sensibility while enhancing an intrinsic poeticism in her work. While this exhibition continues her investigation of ‘interior’ worlds - on both physical and psychological levels – the work shifts towards an exploration of the relationship(s) that exist between consciousness and the creative impulse through emotions such as fear, anguish and desire.

Cold Light series

'Shadows are a corset for light. When forms emerge unknown they dance on our field of perception, igniting imaginary landscapes and projections of desire.' Tara Gilbee

'Cold Light' is a series of photographic images that explore the quality of light as manipulated through photography. The artworks are large and invite the viewer to make their own meaning from the shapes and forms that shimmer from the page.

What do you see when you look?

Skylab

WALKING into the 'Skylab, Out of Orbit' exhibition at the Cannery Arts Centre is a sensory and exciting experience. You are taken into a dimly lit world with images and sounds that seem to take you to galaxies far, far away.
