Bina Butcher and Tessa Beale will work in residence, creating conditions for quiet consideration of ephemeral moments through sound, video projection, found objects and works on paper. Exploring the movement of bodies of water, textures, shadows and sound, the artists aim to re-contextualise their own sensory experiences and interactions in a new environment: the gallery.
Butcher explores notions of domesticity, architecture and aspects of daily life that are overlooked due to habit and routine. Butcher’s work aims to draw out unique moments, textures and surface qualities within seemingly banal spaces. Working across printmaking, photography, video, sound and sculpture, Butcher’s practice allows for quiet reflection on transitory moments.
Beale’s multidisciplinary practice draws inspiration from the natural landscape, geology and flora. Using a process of collection and response, Beale zooms into surfaces and details, extracting particular properties and characteristics, establishing new contexts for observation. Beale returned last year from a residency in Reykjavik, Iceland, and continues to work from source material gathered there.
