Close to Here featuring Cara Johnson, Michaela Pegum, Sarah Taylor & Gabbee Stolp

  • Stephen McLaughlan Gallery (The Nicholas Building Level 8, Room 16) 37 Swanston Street Melbourne, VIC, 3000 Australia (map)

'Close to here' is an exhibition of work by four artists whose practices are ongoing, personal responses to engagements with the natural world. With two artists working regionally and two from urban environments, 'Close to here' is a distilled view of four individual approaches to exploring and making. Working in contemporary jewellery and object-based practices, the artists engage with site, narrative, embodiment, poetics and time through a range of material practices. This selection of work casts light on our relationship with the natural world through varying lenses, creating a microcosm of our multifarious dimensions of experience. 

Opening Event: Thursday 31 August 5-7PM
