Presents works by contemporary artists who experiment with scale and form to transform everyday objects and materials.

Across a diverse array of media, including sculpture, installation and video, these artists reimagine the found and repurpose the ordinary, disrupting our existing perceptions and inviting us to look anew. In some of the works, such as Christian de Vietri’s 2nd law 2006 and Nicholas Mangan’s Untitled (nest) 2004, the process of transformation is rendered active and strange. In others, the surprising relocation of an object triggers a playful juxtaposition, its once utilitarian function completely relinquished within the context of the gallery space.

The exhibition features works by Australian and New Zealand artists from the ARTAND Emerging Artist Collection, which was gifted to the Gallery in 2015.
