Alex Asch, Giles Ryder, Lucio Auri, Claire Healy & Sean Cordeiro
15 May to 20 June
Digest is the third exhibition in the trilogy based on the theme of ‘consuming art’ presented at Canberra Glassworks over the past three years. Drink! in 2011 and Eat! in 2012 each had their own delicious flavours and collectively showed the work of more than 50 artists.
Guest curator and artist Scott Chaseling has invited 5 internationally recognised artists: Alex Asch, Giles Ryder, duo, Clair Healy and Sean Cordeiro, and Lucio Auri, to respond to the theme of Digest to create a thought provoking and diverse exhibition.
Chaseling says, “Coming from a place that we have forgotten or discreetly disregarded the goal is to present works that discuss the theme of ‘Digest’. Selecting works that absorb our attention through text (a digest of writings); reveal a reflux (processing the present and recalling memories) or tracing the tracts; area and article (entrails of architecture)”.
Exhibition Opening: Wednesday, 15 May at 6pm
Gallery Floor Talk: Saturday, 15 June at 10.30am
