Add It Up | Belinda Fox is a new exhibition of work by the multidisciplinary artist of world renown and former Mildura local.
Add It Up spans two spaces: the survey room and the collage room.
The survey room features selected works from 2011 to present, and loosely focuses on the idea of ‘a sense of place’, and how living in multiple countries has had an influence on Fox’s arts practice. There are common themes of environment and human frailty throughout the different works.
The collage room highlights the large-scale paper installations in the Mildura Arts Centre Collection, titled ‘Finding my way I and II’ from 2009. These pieces were created by cutting up past work – etching plates and collaged elements – with the idea that Fox’s past is always informing her future.
Another integral part of the second room is The Collage Project, a new large-scale, experimental, and community-based work, developed in collaboration with selected students/participants from the Mildura region. Participants will work with Belinda to create artworks, drawings, poems, and letters, which will form two new large-scale collages. The Collage Project will be a celebration of how a sense of place is powerful and enduring.
