Subject / Object
Developed by Shepparton Art Museum (SAM) in partnership with Bendigo Art Gallery and La Trobe Art Institute, artist Damon Moon will be presenting a series of exhibitions that respond to these unique Victorian regional collections and spaces. Moon has selected collections of vessels or pots that are specific to each institution, history and context.
Using slip cast multiples and repetitive forms, Moon explores the subtle shifts in technique and materiality between his work and the selected ceramics. He offers a form of object-based conversation between his own ceramics works and works from each Collection selected to reflect on each place’s history of art and industry.
Subject / Object is a feature project of Artlands Victoria, Australia's largest regional art gathering. This exhibition will be on display at SAM from Saturday 25 August - Sunday 11 November 2018.
