Robert Andrew: 'Presence'

Fortitude Valley, Brisbane Area

Weekly from 31 August – 26 October 2019 - 

Free Entry

'Presence' is a solo show by Brisbane-based First Nations artist Robert Andrew. Andrew expands on his kinetic installation practice to create a new physical landscape that combines programmable technological machinery with string, earth pigments, ochres, rocks, and soil.

This work will change throughout the exhibition’s duration, creating a residue and revealing an internal core that references Aboriginal histories, stories, and connections. A deep sense of time and continuity is expressed in the work’s movement, invoking cycles enacted to and within the land.

The exhibition at IMA Belltower is accompanied by a new projection work developed in collaboration with Sai Karlen for the façade of the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts.

IMA Belltower at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. The program is curated by Freja Carmichael.
