Field Working Slow Making (2016)
field working slow making, curated by Nien Schwarz and Annette Nykiel, features work by artists who are renowned for working with collections of materials (text, image, objects and raw materials) gathered specifically from field-based experiences in non-urban spaces (bush). Their “slow making” and “place making” evolves from personal relationships with the WA bush (remote regions and communities, native forests, spinifex country, mine sites and stations) and on processing bush-derived materials and experiences for inquiry.
Artists include Nandi Chinna, Sharyn Egan, George Karpathakis, Annette Nykiel, Perdita Phillips, Nien Schwarz, Nalda Searles and Holly Story
