Description

Reflecting a myriad of historical and contemporary influences, artists explore ideas ranging from Australian cultural and social history, self-portraiture, identity and transformation, to a humorous perspective on skullduggery and office culture, and theories surrounding the fourth dimension expressed through diverse media including sculpture, video, painting, textiles, ceramics and installation.
