Two new exhibitions at PhotoAccess

When: opening 6pm Thursday 3 May and continuing until Sunday 27 May

Where: Huw Davies Gallery, PhotoAccess, Manuka Arts Centre

Synergies by Adelaide based artists Beverley Southcott, Will Nolan and Jenn Brazier investigates the in-between spaces that reside beneath our tangible reality. The works reconfigure the real or non-real in an attempt to restore equilibrium to the superabundance that invariably surrounds us. Be these the unconscious depths of our minds depicted as pockets of urban oasis; the abstract and fluid nature of the virtual world reconstructed as collaged realities; or the seeking of peaceful and meditative spaces amid news broadcasts of war and conflict.

Join Jenn Brazier and Beverley Southcott at 5:15pm on Thursday 3 May 2018 for an artist talk in the gallery prior to the exhibition opening. Free event. All welcome.

Exploring the fundamental and insidious traits of our throwaway society, (I’m) Wrapped (Up) In You playfully questions the interplay between consumerism, over consumption, socioeconomic divisions and beauty standards. This exhibition looks at the way our society currently consumes products and precious commodities, by deciphering existing trends around fresh food, plastic packaging and online socialising. The results are mixed media artworks that repackage these trends in honest and absurd ways, while highlighting our lifestyles of convenience and compliance.
