Notes:

Some objective points about the work are that it’s a sculpture that is based on a chair trolley. It is also, at least for me, a line drawing in stainless steel. The curves and angles are pedantic and stem from an interest in proportions, weight distribution – formal concerns. I am consistently interested in equipment used in industry and the aesthetics of steel yards etc. I want to make objects look impossibly light, preferring objects that tilt and balance. Bonita Bub

A painting by Kazimir Malevitch (Black Pentagon, 1915) is the starting point for these works involving the book ‘Flatland, A Romance of Many Dimensions’, by Edwin Abbott Abbott – a satirical and scientific novel published in 1884 – which I relate to the Suprematist system of Kazimir Malevich in the 1910’s. These works are a speculation about two different worlds, two different places, flat places, to be exact, 29 years apart. Nuno Rodrigues de Sousa

These Half Moon Bay beaches hold personal significance to myself and – while they are tied together by their name – a time zone and a body of water separates these two bays. In an attempt to collapse the space that separates these places, this one and a half year project has seen me travel to and from both countries in order to create glass souvenirs specific to these sites. Their lifespan is unknown – embodying an attempt to hold onto a certain moment that refuses to exist as anything but temporary. Zainab Hikmet

Two prints from a series called “Checkmate”. These prints are maps made with droplets of semen that mark sexually transgressive spaces in Sydney – mostly public/semi public spaces like toilets but some are homes, saunas, parks, general cruising areas, etc. The placement of each droplet is accurate in relation to a traditional map of Sydney. So, (before) is the semen as semen is naturally and (after) is the semen once I’ve dripped a drop of the chemical from the CheckMate Infidelity Test Kit, into the semen. Yiorgo Yiannopoulos
