ANNA LAERKESEN (2019) PHOTO BY MEG HEWITT

Anna Laerkesen is a visual artist working across various media to investigate the terrain of placement / re-placement / replacement and the vulnerable body in public space. She has worked professionally in the arts running public and her own arts programs, large scale public art events and theatre both internationally and nationally. Anna Laerkesen’s works suggest narratives that are central to colonising cultures- for example, being lost in the unmapped primal wilderness or questions of origin and sustainability.

 

Lisa Kotoulas has a strong interest in neuroscience and psychology, expression and gesture as the primary focus of her work. By capturing moments of suspended time, the chance to engage in an exploration of Self, Identity and Truth often presents itself. Creating dimensions where the real and imagined collide, where reality is indistinguishable from the fabricated and where consciousness meets subconsciousness meets unconsciousness are her main objectives. The disorientations of time and space continue to motivate Lisa’s work.

 Inferno by William Mansfield

INFERNO BY WILLIAM MANSFIELD (2016)

William Mansfield is a Sydney based multi-disciplinary visual artist. Pursuing a dynamic experimental DIY aesthetic, Mansfield utilises a broad range of mediums including video, sculpture and installation. Mansfield’s unique practice conflates ideas of schlock horror and glitch art with childhood nostalgia, interrogating notions of torment and the grotesque, with irreverent and kitsch humour. He employs pre-cinematic devices and handmade dioramas to weave together open-ended narratives within his work.

Fiona Edmeades is a sculptor who works predominantly through process and materiality to investigate the complex nature of our human experience. Conciseness manifest through the realm of form, a reality which we all share and to which we are all bound. Fiona feels that although we may fixate on the big events, it within the banal and the everyday – in the repetition of the mundane –that we create the rich and complex fabric that is our life..
