6 March – 30 March 2019
Wild Remembering brings textiles, weaving and performance to ideas about the body and nature. This series of works by Brisbane-based artists Rachael Wellisch and Emma Gardner and Vienna-based Claudia-Maria Luenig express sensitive spatial relationships in their form. An earlier exhibition of this work seen in Vienna in December 2018 was applauded for its ability to frame its imagery in multiple spatial iterations. The exhibition title is drawn from connections to nature and bodily memory, creating links between humanity and a changing environment. In making expanded paintings with indigo dyes, Wellisch focusses on the relationship between nature and culture, Luenig creates crocheting as physical drawings by stitching her own body into them, and Gardner’s work explores the environment and her own image from a feminine and folk-story perspective.
