INTERSTITIAL: 2019 Australian Ceramics Triennial

1 - 25 May 2019

The works in Interstitial describe a concomitant charge; this curated collection of ceramic forms is quietly electric. Brought together on the occasion of the 2019 Ceramics Triennial, Interstitial showcases four artist's inimitable dedication to precision, and deep intuition for affective relations. The title of the show came through the artists conversations with Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery Senior Curator of Decorative Arts, Peter Hughes. Hughes points us toward the in-between spaces where exquisite objects and tableaux come alive through precipitous proximity. Interstices is an unfolding of spaces so sleight that only light falls between. Troublesome, anxious and playful hierarchies delicately manifest in still life’s that seem always on the edge of animation— elegant abstraction plays against humble function, there is patience, quiet and then the shock of an impossible tilt.
