TO HEAT TO FREEZE TO PRICK

 

February 2010

99 Melbourne Street South Brisbane

 

‘To Heat, To Freeze, To Prick” is the third installation of The Wandering Rooms Window Box Project at 99 Melbourne St, South Brisbane. That route you could often walk from West End to the City vis a vis if you prefer the road more traveled.

 

The artists, Madeleine Kelly, Megan Cope, and Elizabeth Willing have created ephemeral and intimate works, which all relate to the concept of flux. That which is delicate, fragile, and breakable. Using experimental materials, with an often minimal and neutral aesthetic, the power within these works is their simplicity and non-complicity to permanence. With reference to both architecture and the environment, the artists in ‘To Heat, To Freeze, To Prick’ take up various modes of ephemeral art making.

 

Madeleine Kelly will be exploring the medium of installation, whilst utilizing materials such as light, foam and cardboard, giving you the impulse to examine illusion and that which is magical. Elizabeth Willing, who comes from a conceptual background, will experiment with edible (what will develop over the time of the show) edifices. Megan Cope, through the lens of anthropology and sociology will explore the duality evident in drought and fire, while exploring notions of the land. Cope’s sculpture will be built of ice and sand from the Western Australian Tanami desert.

 

Come and check out the extentions of these artists works on the opening night, and watch them slowly shift throughout the duration of the exhibition. 

 

This event is sponsored by Nectar Beer and Wine specialists, and The Queensland Government.
