Open 11am - 5pm, Fri - Sun, July 12 to July 28 at Articulate project space 


MULTI_GRIP is an exhibition of work by artists Connie Anthes, Sue Callanan, Lynne Eastaway, Jane Gavan, Beata Geyer, Lesley Giovanelli, Adrian Hall, Georgina Pollard, Alicia Poppett, Margaret Roberts, Tania Rollond, Kathryn Ryan, Kelley Stapleton, Skye Wagner, Emma Wise and Ling Yuen.

While the works come from whatever is currently happening in each artist's practice, the exhibition also reflects Articulate's focus on relationships artworks construct with their location. The spatial and physical nature of artworks mean they attach to their physical location in one way or another, and it is this physical relationship, as well as the expected multiplicity of those 'gripping' methods, that is acknowledged in the title.

Sue Callanan Another dab’ll do it: “Back in 5”
The art of construction versus the construction of art.
The building is the site. The artist seeks to prevail in or against its presence. But as site, it is the beginning point for considering the nature of construction: a work in progress where, as with the human body we aspire to perfection through persistent repair.
The artist has left her watch: “Back in 5 mins”, and the work takes on a life of its own - builder’s foam oozes from the cracks it seeks to fill, defying its intended purpose.
A dab of glue, clamp, wait……
