Exhibition Details

Grace Kingston 'Deep Down'

Grace Kingston investigates the relationship between online and real life environments in her immersive sensory installation. Running for 10 minutes viewers will encase themselves in a simulated nature experience that will question our edited/curated online lives, and how they measure up to the real.

Rebecca Gallo 'Lifted'

Rebecca Gallo employs the practice of walking and collecting items to further her connection to the spaces she inhabits. In this exhibition she will present a large scale installation of found materials gathered on walks in the area surrounding the Peacock Gallery and Auburn Botanic Gardens. The sculpture of found materials will tells its own story of the area while also highlighting the items and materials that we are quick to discard.
