Worn Land: Four contemporary jewellers in the Pilbara
Launching 22 September 2016 at The Goods Shed, Worn Land showcases the results of jewellers Yuko Fuijta, Nicky Hepburn, Pennie Jagiello and Natalia Milosz-Piekarska’s residencies in the Pilbara. The artists ventured into some of the most isolated parts of northern Western Australia and this resulting exhibition explores the disorienting intersection of desire and displacement that can accompany our experience of place, engaging with an ungraspable and resistant landscape through materiality and scale.
Consuelo Cavaniglia & Penny Coss – Regional Residency Program.
Though engaged with two different mediums, mid-career artists Consuelo Cavaniglia and Penny Coss share an interest in evoking ephemeral states and transitory environmental phenomena in their works. FORM has invited both artists to undertake a residency in the Pilbara and immerse themselves in landscape that is almost hallucinatory in its harsh beauty and extremes of climate and light. Outcomes of their research will show at The Goods Shed in 2017.
