Under Construction features contemporary visual artists Aliça Bryson-Haynes & Lizzy Sampson, Dominic Kavanagh, Louise Paramor and Steaphan Paton. It will also feature Claire McArdle in an extended residency from 6 April until 12 June.

Each of the artists will respond to the physical spaces of the historic Homestead and present new works that are sculptural and installation based, created at the Homestead in public view. The public can engage the artist in discussion about their art and the art making process.

Aliça Bryson-Haynes & Lizzy Sampson will draw from research of the gallery and be a response to the physical and historical relevance of the building. Dominic Kavanagh will create a large scale installation in The Mess Gallery: 75 sqm. Louise Paramor will create a dynamic installation of her sculptural assemblages. Indigenous artist Steaphan Paton will create a new wall installation and floor-based work and Claire McArdle will create a new body of work using the gallery as her studio for the duration of the exhibition.

‘The act of making is intrinsic to art production and yet is often unnoticed by audiences’, says Claire Watson, curator. ‘The audience will have the rare opportunity to observe this process firsthand and engage with the physical realities of creating installations. Under Construction will demystify the artistic process and create a live dialogue between artist and audience’.
