Mythologies of the Discarded

My latest curatorial project is about to launch! Mythologies of the Discarded opens on Saturday 28th October at Peacock Gallery, Auburn.

The exhibition presents the work of international and local artists Maria Grazia Tata, Jody Graham, Sepideh Farzam, Jan Cleveringa and Bahman Kermany whose installations are deeply rooted in mythology, our relationship with nature, sustainability and transformation.

Each artist has re-defined their materials and created items of beauty, sacredness and power. The creative process of collecting discarded objects vividly highlights the journey through ancient, primal and visceral spaces, imploring the viewer into a deeper contemplation with nature and technological progress.

 

I look forward to sharing this exhibition with you next week.
