20 August- 6 October
Reflections sees artists, Meredith Turnbull and Anna Varendorff in a joint exhibition exploring the possibility of reflection through interior display, object and sculpture. Inverting the obvious divisive properties of mirrors, Reflections creates connected viewpoints from Craft’s interior to exterior spaces. Varendorff’s objects exploit the tactile utility of crafted forms, intervening with preconceptions of function and space while focusing on the notion of reflection through mirroring and diverging from a central axis. Turnbull’s mirror sculptures focus on form and function through literal reflection and interior scale, exploring the connections between adornment, sculpture and abstraction.
Meredith Turnbull’s artworks create connections between images, jewellery, objects and sculptural components through spatial practice. Meredith completed a Bachelor of Arts, Honours in Art History at La Trobe University (2000), a Bachelor of Fine Art at RMIT University (2005) and is currently a PhD candidate in Fine Art at Monash University. Recent exhibitions include: Provisional Objects, Jam Factory, Adelaide, with Tom Borgas and Kate Beckingham; Setting, Glen Eira Council Gallery, with Manon van Kouswijk and Anna Varendorff in 2015; Ensemble, Station and Co-workers: Objects, Pieces of Eight, 2014.
