From Hawkesbury to Caboolture
Curated by Diana Robson, Exploring: BigCi features a survey of works selected from Australian and International BigCi artists in residence. BigCi (Bilpin International Grounds for Creative Initiatives) sits within the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, providing access to a rich ecology covering over one million hectares.
The exhibition at Hawkesbury Regional Gallery brings together works by Chris Dolman and Paul Williams (Sydney), Kath Fries (Sydney), Hyewon Hye Shim (Korea), Claudia Luke (Germany), Crisia and Andrei Miroiu (Romania), Nandita Mukand (Singapore), Rachel Peachy and Paul Mosig (Blue Mountains) and Nicola Moss (Gold Coast). Nicola's hand cut paper works showcase the individual lives and connected relationships of fauna, flora and human development in the region. Developed from experiences during her four week residency in 2012, the works incorporate tactile surfaces of frottage, mono-print and stains from site
Exploring: BigCi officially opens on Friday 19th June at 6pm, and continues to 2nd August 2015 at Hawkesbury Regional Gallery, Deerubbin Centre, 300 George Street, Windsor, New South Wales.
Nicola's hand cut paper works will also be on show in the upcoming exhibition Disassemble/Reassemble at Caboolture Regional Art Gallery, Queensland. Curated by Zoe Roos, Disassemble/Reassemble highlights the relationship between humans and nature, particularly the impact that human life has on the planet. The curatorial drive for the exhibition arose from memories of the early 1990's environmental superhero, Captain Planet, the star of an animated children's TV edutainment series that advocated environmentalism.
Disassemble/Reassemble officially opens on Saturday 27th June 2015 at 10.30am with artist talks held prior from 9.30am. The show continues to 2nd August 2015.
