Arts Project Australia in partnership with the Counihan Gallery In Brunswick presents Landmarks, the work of a group of artists that together reveal the ways in which we simultaneously navigate and inscribe our urban environment.
A landscape covered with structures, signs and symbols, emblazoned billboards and competing texts, our habitat is characterised by the traces of human presence and behaviour. In Landmarks the constructed environment is associated with memory and meaning as human markers accumulate, overlap and disintegrate. It is where shared spaces are transformed into personal maps of association and experience, where we might describe the world as one which can be read.
Featuring work by Peter Atkins (Tolarno Galleries), Jessica Ebert, Kirrily Hammond, Janelle Low, Chris O’Brien (Arts Project Australia) and Steven Perette (Arts Project Australia), curated by Victor Griss and Sim Luttin.
Landmarks will officially open Thursday 25 August 6-8pm.
