Dresser details

Perdita Phillips will be participating in a residency Field_Notes – Deep Time at the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station of the University of Helsinki in Lapland.

The residency will explore local geology, ecology and nature and is followed by a symposium in Helsinki. Phillips will be working in a team led by visual artist/environmental artist Leena Valkeapää: “We will be follow time in a living landscape from the perspective of the local reindeer herding tradition” (http://bioartsociety.fi/deep_time/time-and-landscape/).

waste land (detail) 2013

 

fast|slow|complex by Perdita Phillips presents a rigorous body of work from this distinctive Western Australian artist. The exhibition combines investigations into themes of waste and wastelands, with explorations of disaster and transformation born from post-disaster environments.

The works showcase the artist’s agility in a diverse range of media, including drawing, video and sculpture. fast|slow|complex marks a crystallisation of Phillips’ practice of examining the parallels and complexities within the living world, with a new reflective focus on recuperative socioecological strategies for the future. The artworks contain oblique suggestions of hope in an ‘unruly’ world of complexity and flux. Burdens are lightened and wastefulness is replaced by elegant and thrifty recuperative strategies.

Shy (dissolution + exchange) in Yonder

shy animation (quick trial)

The conceptual mail art project Shy (dissolution + exchange) is slowly making its way around the southern hemisphere. The work is on display in the exhibition, Yonder at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, James Street, Perth from 8 September – 21 October 2012.

Yonder offers a contemporary perspective on the desire that artists have always had to know ‘what’s over there’. With the notion of ‘mobility’ as the exhibition’s central idea, Yonder considers some of the poetic and pragmatic connotations associated with this strategy for investigating, taking action and day dreaming about one’s place in the world.
