Interlude Gallery is excited to announce our first exhibition of the year by Canberra based artist Amber Grace!
2018 is here with some intriguing collaborations, projects and a sumptuous exhibition program.
Gathering Mist is a conspicuous object design installation which aims to transform the space and viewers experience of it. By adopting natural elements crafting and manipulating them to the point of major simplicity (like any old master), using control environments, Amber Grace invites the public to submerge and not emerge, in the captivating experience of an artificial habitat, a projection of her experience in the green lands of Scotland and other paradisical landscapes. This a singular exhibition at Interlude Gallery, which prospects to bring dialogue with other so call “disciplines” of the creative practice, design, installation, object design and visual arts merge together in Gathering Mist.
We hope we can count on your presence!
Opening Night: Thursday 25th 6-8pm
Closing Feast: Saturday 3th 3-5pm
“GATHERING MIST is a collaboration, a collection of work inspired by ECHOES I began gathering them whilst wandering the Glens and Isles of Scotland, where I was indulging an obsession with mist and moss. Strangely this obsession was about belonging. I wanted to belong! ... To evoke these echoes Gathering mist incorporates many natural materials such as stone, wood, silk, rust, wind, moss and of course mist. I am a sensual creature, to smell, see and hear and touch always has power that imagination cannot create. Sometimes in the landscape, sometimes of the landscape, the mediums of jewellery, textile and object allow me to change the perception of the viewer. The Japanese aesthetic brings imagination and unworldly mystery, and helps express the simplicity and clarity of naturalness, to be precisely what something is meant to
be, not more, or less. It has allowed me to create, using techniques such as asymmetry, irregularity, freedom from habit, and yet balance, a likeness of nature and some of its qualities that I feel in myself.”
