fast|slow|complex> by Perdita Phillips presents an 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.
