Andrea Eckersley, Surface Activation
28 May - 22 June 2015

Painting is customarily understood as a form of mark making that renders materials and arrangements of lines, or areas of colour, into compositions on surfaces. While a painting can be conceived of as more than a marked surface, it is primarily these surface features and their particular qualities and arrangements that are said to comprise the material aspects of a painting. Working with a range of surfaces including painting and sculpture, and surface effects such as those achieved with light, this exhibition approaches painting by way of the activation of surfaces in an event felt as a difference in intensity. Each work explores relationships between intensive and extensive space, colour and sensation, the surface and affect, and the ways these relationships intensify the encounter with painting. Encounters activate surfaces in an assemblage of affects. This is the event of painting.

This exhibition comprises the practical component of Andrea Eckersley’s PhD research.

Todd Anderson-Kunert, Everything in Its Place
16-22 June 2015

This examination exhibition presents one of the installations realised during my doctoral candidature. The question pursued throughout my thesis was how could the spatiotemporal conditions of sound and image components be used within an arts practice that encompassed installation, performance, and publications (releases). Documentation of all other completed projects will also be available for viewing in electronic format.

This exhibition comprises the practical component of Todd Anderson-Kunert’s PhD research.
