Lost for words

This exhibition brings together five artists who use text or refer to language in their work, without committing to text art as a practice or text as a medium. As the title suggests, the work in this exhibition will seek to extend and explore the limits of language.

Vague Possibilities

The curatorial premise of the exhibition Vague Possibilities draws on the French curator and critic Nicholas Bourriaud's (1965- ) ideas of Relational Aesthetics and Surrealist notions of chance and play. The five selected artists are invited to respond to a curatorial brief that includes developing artwork (installation, video and performances) for staging in the gallery that set-up scenarios that engage the public are likely to create surprising encounters and open up unexpected possibilities.

Margin to Centre: Visionary Art

Margin to Centre: Visionary Art is an exhibition of work by artists who are self-taught and have developed their practices outside of mainstream art schools and galleries. Many of the artists have been marginalisation from society because of eccentricity, poverty or illness, or through institutionalisation in prisons and psychiatric hosptials. Although grouped together as 'Outsider Art' the work is idiosyncratic reflecting, not a style or a movement, but a range of very disparate visions.

Heartlines

Heartlines is an installation and performance project engaging with transient emotions, connections, things hidden and restrained, the beautiful and the terrible. Inspired by Paul Grabowsky's theme for the 2010 Adelaide Festival of the Arts, the artists in this exhibition have approached the perplexing mysteries of matters of the heart from wildly different perspectives. Creating an entangled web, ideas converge and intersect in space and through time.

Naturally Disturbed

Naturally Disturbed is the result of an interdisciplinary collaboration between Sue Kneebone and Dr Philip Jones. The exhibition engages with the complex history, intersecting narratives and unexplained absences that relate to Yardea, a pastoral property in the Gawler Ranges in South Australia, once managed by Sue Kneebone's great grandfather. The exhibition is underpinned by research into family, history and place, and considers the roles that environmental philosophy and fieldwork play in contextualising histories.

Flight of a bird, life in performance

Flight of a bird, a life in performance explores psychological and physical risk through the artwork of Ali Baker, Linda Lou Murphy and Yoko Kaijo. As well as maintaining independent practices, these three Adelaide based artists worked collaboratively as shimmeeshok, performing in galleries and devising guerrilla street works. This exhibition, curated by Keith Giles, Ali and Yoko, includes archival video, sculptural installations and new performances. Exposing the inherent frailty and pain of being, the work is fragile, intense and sometimes disturbing.

Three ways to hold

Three ways to hold is a cross-disciplinary dance/visual art work, joining Bridget Currie and Alison Currie as collaborators. Both Alison and Bridget have a long history of making works on the edges of their expected domains. Looking for the spaces in between, the unnoticed and the frictions between forms. This heightened attentiveness to the world around us exposes a multitude of small delights and things unnoticed, a prevailing interest of both artists. In observing this, as a viewer, one must ask what is it we are not noticing?

Az Zaban-e Modari:
Raqs-e Aab Raqs-e Setareh

All that I do, all that I am, all that I love and all that I resist are from my mother tongue. My encounter with these notions is the reflection of a sensibility; that is hope, arising from Persian mysticism and Bahai literature, to give a tone of optimism towards universal human values where resistance, equity, love, being, beauty and truth are implemented to deal with history and explore issues pertaining to the human condition - Siamak Fallah.

After the goldrush

The idea for this combination of works germinated in conversation with Joe Felber as he showed me a series of photographs he had taken of the Alps in his native Switzerland. The images were austere and pristine, the mountains apparently timeless/immutable/untouched: eddies of mist, drifts of cloud the only visible signs of temporal or physical change.  Depicted in crisp, richly toned black and white they held an aura of documented, hushed permanence - Lisa Harms.

Chance Encounters

The curatorial premise and the exhibition title are derived from Andre Bretons phrase as beautiful as the chance encounter, on a dissecting table, of a sewing-machine and an umbrella. The phrase alludes to the unpredictable ruptures in the everyday which surprise, shock, upturn order and disrupt normality.

Gathering loss

Gathering Loss is an exhibition of work by Irmina van Niele that explores cultural and emotional attachment to place and the effects of displacement and loss. Using processes that are obsessive and repetitive - such as making collages from hundreds of cut-out paper images of buildings and people, and knitting striped pastel patches out of old plastic bags - Irmina's work evokes fragmentary and incoherent childhood memories, nostalgia and a sense of instability.

In her art practice Gosia equates the reality of 'being' with seeing. Engaging with time, space and place her drawings reflect what she sees existing in the immediate proximity of the space surrounding her. As she states: 'I draw my environment as I see it in real time - tracing and re-tracing the visible...' (Gosia Wlodarczak March 2008)

While working towards installation, performance and publication outcomes, this project focuses on process, generative and open-ended possibilities.

The Constance Gordon-Johnson Sculpture and Installation Prize

Since 2004 the Constance Gordon-Johnson Prize has recognised the outstanding achievements of four emerging artists from the Sculpture and Installation studio of the South Australian School of Art. The event however is more than a generous cash prize for an individual artist. Since the inaugural exhibition we have presented the work of 26 talented and committed emerging artists. In some cases this has been the first professional opportunity the artists have had to present their work, in most cases it has been the first of many professional engagements the Sculpture and Installation Studio Alumni have enjoyed.

Years without magic

Years without magic is an exhibition by Louise Haselton and Bridget Currie in which they explore 'connections and commonalities' in their work. Ideas intersect and resonate. The discarded and banal transform into things golden, mysterious and whimsical. Often seamless sculptural and installation practices are problematised. Traditional techniques such as metal casting are juxtaposed with the slipshod and cobbled together; the materiality and inherent qualities of found and made objects fascinate and repulse, and works carefully placed in the gallery space are contrasted with others randomly dropped during a performance.
