Consider the artist as a surface, possibly solid and flat like marble, or soft and rippled like foam, even a combination of the two. All surfaces resound or echo in some way, perhaps softening or distorting, directly reiterating or if the surface allows there is the potential for total absorption.
To Resound, Unbound–Histories explores the possibilities of this resounding, seeing the artist adapt or unbind that which comes to them, moulding it to their artistic will, to then resound it back through artistic expression.
Echoing throughout the exhibition spaces, To Resound, Unbound–Histories presents a series of new commissions and significant works from emerging and established lens-based practitioners from across Australia. This group of four artists explore themes concerning knowledge, memory, identity, trauma, representation and time, typically found in both societal and cultural structures and narratives.
