During a year where between bushfires and COVID 19 we are increasingly being forced to confront the ways in which we live Michelle Hamer’s artwork allows us to confront the everyday language and messages embedded around us.

‘Nothing Is Promised’ is a darkly humorous venture into language reflecting the promises we make ourselves as individuals and as a society. The slowness of Hamer’s hand-stitched and drawn work allows us to be present in otherwise fleeting moments. It is analogue and digital, personal and political, deeply philosophical and yet completely off beat as it connects to the moments we all experience. Hamer’s practice is a collection of her own and found language forming a social archive over time.

Works in this show include moments from contested borders and urban spaces, cries for help from our streets and pavements and state sanctioned instructions reminding us of our choices.
