EXPO Chicago

Chicago / September 2015

31.25 kilograms of ice melts into images of icebergs was a 30 minute long performance at the National Resource Defense Council’s exhibition at EXPO Chicago.

It’s widely understood that 60% of the human body is water, so what does that look like? Over thirty minutes Linda harvested water from a 31.25kg ice cube and drew images of icebergs on the Water Light Graffiti wall. Caught between inscribing and evaporation the representation of an iceberg shifted in and out of view.

Movers is presented by Random Institute and Fresh Window at the Exchange Rates Exhibition in Bushwick

Brooklyn / 23-26 October 2014

Don’t Talk to Strangers playfully confound two typically distinct spaces—the gallery & the domestic home—as artists will present their work in the households of participating NY residents. In each dwelling, an installation area is designated, while the existing items (i.e. sofas, coffee tables, books, and personal objects) are moved and reinstalled at in a gallery space.

With the artworks thus displaced, gallery visitors must directly contact the private hosts, whose phone numbers are available alongside their displayed belongings.

Along with artists Karyn Oliver and Thomas Moor.

Worm Mountain

Melbourne / July 2010

Bear is on show as part of Worm Mountain at c3 contemporary Artspace.

Worm Mountain is a curated exhibition of new works by emerging artists with a focus on natural history explored through seven contemporary arts practices.

Nature is an entity unto itself before and beyond us, endlessly moving in synergetic cycles of death and creation, ebbing and flowing in it’s own chaotic patterns of evolution and destruction through time spans beyond the human grasp. The cultivated perspective is really one of comprehension as we come to terms with our own time and place within this chaos to deal with natural elements beyond our control whether we are harmonious or contrary.

These artists cite nature and the sublime as concerns for their work. As they draw inspiration from their environments reflecting an internalized space more so than the exterior landscape, one where value is not added but processed and experienced. This may manifests in many forms such as, the decorative, historical, scientific, sociological, spiritual, auto biographical or nostalgic but most often a unique fusion. This exhibition aims to present these as a reflection of Contemporary Art and Natural History in 2010.

Artists: Amber Wallis, Andy Hutson, Dane Lovett, Jordan Wood, Linda Tegg, Lucy Griggs and Nicola Page.
