World Material brings together the work of Australian artists whose works explore the spaces between strength and delicacy, between the material and the conceptual, between accident and intent, between the real and the fictional, and between representation and abstraction – embodying an exploration, recontextualisation, and sometimes deliberate obfuscation of natural, found and humanmade materials. The exhibition is intended as an exploration of these tensions, suggesting totem-like resonances within and between the works of these artists.
