Waratah Lahy

- Overlooked, 2014

15 July to 9 August

My current work explores ideas of inside and outside, internal and external. I am depicting physical as well as emotional spaces through an investigation of colour, composition and pattern. I am interested in everyday scenes, focussing on details that are rich in mood, conveying an experience of place and time.

Anne Penman Sweet

- Through Uncertain Lands, 2014

15 July to 9 August

In this exhibition I seek to evoke some of the excitement and foreboding encountered upon entering new and strange terrains – landscapes that lie undisturbed and unloved, forgotten and forsaken.

In these uncertain lands there is an otherworldly presence, disorienting yet compelling, silently making itself known and felt. In the midst of this disorientation one can momentarily lose one’s bearings, and with it a sense of certainty and security.

Thus, temporarily lost, briefly unbalanced, one can find oneself suddenly immersed in a new and enigmatic, luminous and unknown world.

‘I could see the shape of the land, how it lay holding silence’ Annie Dillard, Teaching a Stone to talk: Expeditions and Encounters

Nicole Welch presents 'Lament'

- Black Box Projects, 2014

15 July to 9 August

The video 'Lament' by represented artist Nicole Welch is a mesmerising time-lapse that strips a Victorian chandelier down to its skeletal structure and then builds it back up to its former exuberance. The video continues to cycle between these two stages.

Fallen Fruit presents 'Fruit Machine'

- Black Box Projects, 2014

28 June to 12 July

An ongoing project in which teenagers (age 12 to 17) are recorded on video eating a variety of fruit. A study in how we actually eat, the portraits range from graceful to awkward and comical, as the teenagers navigate what they quickly come to realize is a not-so-simple task.

Fallen Fruit is an art collaboration originally conceived in 2004 by David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young. Since 2013, David and Austin have continued the collaborative work. Fallen Fruit began by mapping fruit trees growing on or over public property in Los Angeles. The collaboration has expanded to include serialized public projects and site-specific installations and happenings in various cities around the world.
