Site(s) is inspired by how the force and meaning of locations can shape Art making. It explores the processes of each exhibiting artist in relation to space and site. Varied locations manipulate the meaning of art objects, objects that stand as both a response and homage to the site.

Lina Buck’s practice investigates the experience of space in relation to the object and the figure captured in time. She explores the experience of site through measurements of the body across consecutive frames of a performance.

Garth Howells utilizes the waste in artist’s studios to render an always in-progress artwork, sweeping up dust, dirt and byproducts of the creative process to use in the place of paint. Their work scrutinizes the traditions of materials, investigating art as a commodity.

Paul Murphy’s sculptures are an investigation into the site of Lake Pedder, a diversion lake used to produce electricity. His work symbolises the Rose Quartz beaches that once existed in this iconic natural alpine lake. If Lake Pedder still existed, it would have a status similar to Uluru.
