Spun trails

Trash relics grow into history
Camille Perry - defunct machine energy, in the river, stacked and … all towards the sea
Anna Jalansky – body spines, perilously balanced, found and folded, on reaching tip-toe
Maryse Dubois – fecund flower fruit, grown from decay
Tim Hardy – a match flares, a drop of water catches the sun, going down

The movement of many
Patrick Walker – dark metal road-flowers, in humming heat
Brendan Lee – spinning universes of energy, in motion, radiant, towers and stairs and stacks
Ashling Martin – many in the layered crowd, interwoven lives in motion
Ingmar Apinis – pop-bubblegum layered histories, conglomerate

The palace at 4am, erupts with energy
Madeleine Minalk – tiny listening sculptures, humble infinities to treasure
Jia Jia Chen – precious white, embedded bubbles, changing being
Jean Baulch – layered veils from the petri dish, chemical landscape memories
Julien Comer-Kleine – a sonic skeleton, listening to the birds inside

Quiet inside, echoes
Mimi Fitzsimmons – delicate threads with teeth, a harp
Chelsea Farquhar – radiant spirit shadows, circle
Kate Lewis – inside life’s textures and rhythms, soaring the quiet
Kye Hilton – sooty peach at the end of the earth, upside down
