Double Sun is a series of illustrations and sculptural works by Jamie Edward inspired by childhood drawings. In attempt to find a simple beauty in both process and outcome, the exhibition offers a light-hearted examination of our world and the significance of the sun.

The selection of sculptures and drawings in the exhibition capture both the small cycles of plants turning to the sun, and the longer cycles of the turning seasons. Double Sun illuminates the loose mess of making art, and the joy of living with nature. 

The works in Double Sun developed in response to an attempt to make sense of the political and environmental turbulence of recent years. Through open and exploratory work – where a loose and tactile approach allowed for a narrative to gently develop – the sun emerged as a unifying symbol that shapes and informs the human experience. The exhibition orients itself towards the sun, as an essential site of nature, joy and pleasure; as well as part of a cycle of darkness and light. 

From the temperate climate of Bruny Island, the works were produced from a location where the presence of the sun is always welcome. The relative remoteness of the island encourages a creative attention with shifts in the weather and light, and the works in Double Sun reflect how the sun provides this vitality and energy. The sun falls on the petals of native orchid flowers that turn towards the light through the day, tomato plants grow tall towards it, people stretch their limbs into it. 

These artworks capture personal experiences of the sun, and also reflect on the significance of the sun in art, philosophy, astronomy and literature throughout history. While there is warmth and joy in this work, Double-Sun also references the cold and darkness experienced in the sun’s absence as we turn and transition into night and move through the seasons. 

Double Sun attempts to document the intrinsic nature of the sun, through a simple and raw form of ark making. The exhibition is a celebration of the messy, naive and uninhibited expression of creativity. The process of allowing for mistakes and exploratory techniques results in work that catches a glimpse of an elusive moment or idea through abstract representation. Both the subject matter and the art making process are honest, natural and unfiltered. 

The exhibition expands upon the artist’s previous work that repeats a simple idea through showing a motif at scale. The every-day quality of the sun – an essential but seldom considered part of  daily lives – is brought into focus through this repetition and isolated attention. Double Sun continues the artist’s distinctive approach of using a lighthearted and humorous energy that is underscored with themes of waste and darkness. The works are both bright and grubby, but always joyful in their murkiness.

This exhibition is supported through Arts Tasmania.

Wona Bae and Charlie Lawler’s Micro Macro explores ideas of causality as they relate to the self regulating balance between entities. It represents Wona Bae and Charlie Lawler’s first presentation in Tasmania. Interested in the ritual of the everyday experience, their practice probes the periphery of the natural and cultural landscape. For Micro Macro Bae and Lawler look at the fascinating life of Lichen, its unique symbiotic relationship and role as a bio indicator in our environment. In this exhibition the pair present a series of paintings and installation works characterised through abstraction, distortion and repetition. Bae and Lawler emphasise structure and material, using charcoal, ash, synthetic polymers to create highly textured surfaces. Bae and Lawler draw on references from the microcosmic world of lichen, to create works that take on a macrocosmic state.

Wona Bae (South Korea) and Charlie Lawler (Australia) are collaborative artists based in Australia, known internationally for their installations and sculpture that navigate visceral and symbiotic human relationships with nature. 

Their multifarious practice includes sculpture, relief, sound, photography, and video. Drawing on patterns and systems from the world around them, their unique immersive installations experiment with materiality and technology, tapping into the primitive need to find connection with the natural world. 

Grounded in observation and documentation of the world around them, their practice explores human experience in both natural landscapes and the built environment. Characterised through abstraction, distortion and repetition their work plays spatially with ideas relating to perspective and escapism.

Bae and Lawler have held solo exhibitions at Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne (2019/20); Backwoods Gallery, Melbourne (2022 and 2019); See You Soon Gallery, Tokyo (2017); and Koskela Gallery, Sydney (2016). They were commissioned to create a major new installation for The National at the Art Gallery of New South Wales (2021), and have undertaken other major installations throughout Australia, South Korea, Japan, Spain and the UK. Bae and Lawler have won the 2019 Yering Galley Award and the 2018 Yarra Valley Arts/ RACV Award. They have undertaken residencies at Artspace, Sydney (2021), Gregans Retreat, Lisdillon, Tasmania (2020), and Onyang Folk Museum, South Korea (2022).

How many bodies have passed through this hotel room? Those empty cupboards, tight sheets, and lumpy pillows, just an illusion of comfort and homeliness. I contort, conform, disrupt and seek respite in the voids, using my body as language and location as parameter.

The opening event for Vacancy is sponsored by Spotty Dog Brewers

Vacancy is a series of self-portraits representing my body as language, within parameters of specific, often confined, space. Body placement is expressed through a process of conformity and contortion within a space that holds everyday normalcy. The form is both disruptive and illusionary — seeking comfort and filling the void through isolation and retreat.

I once thought hotels to be romantic places, and maybe they were at one time. These days I find them mostly clinical, attempting to lull me into a false sense of comfort and security. Despite this, the hotel room has been my sanctuary for many years. I traveled a lot for work. A nomadic life that appeared glamourous but in actuality was bound by limited space and time. Whilst being on the road, I found myself fighting to make space, to discharge and find retreat in a time-poor reality. The hotel room was often my only respite from the rushed, high-energy experience of putting on a show. These transient spaces gave me both limitations and opportunities for experience and expression to shape my work.

While the elements of interior/exterior maintain plausibility within the work, placing my body within these spaces interrupts a seamless reading, prompting the viewer to question the presence of the body as landscape… Vacancy draws attention to the body’s purpose, flexibility and limitations in relation to space…

Bodies are markers of self … and what is self but a body that relates to space, holds space, takes up space, finds space, makes space and leaves space.

Eddie James

Eddie James is an emerging artist based in nipaluna, Hobart, Tasmania. Influenced by a career on the road, her practice explores the human capacity to see and read body language. She engages with the mind/body connection in creating action, reaction, emotion and physicality. James uses the body, movement and the tactile processes of analogue/alternative photography and printmaking to create a visual tension that highlights displacement, comfort, isolation and freedom. With the use of architecture, light and form, James translates a deep listening of space into a visual experience.

Eddie James trained at Swinburne University, School of Theatre and Performance, completed a Diploma of Visual Arts at the Newcastle Art School in 2019 and is now completing her BFA at The University of Tasmania. In 2020 she received the ‘Cobra’ Award from Contemporary Art Tasmania with which she then created the work ‘Walk On’. This project was picked up by 10 Days On the Island and a further iteration was created specifically for the festival. James has been selected as a finalist in numerous art prizes, including, twice, the Newcastle Emerging Art Prize. She is the current (2022) winner of the Women’s Art Prize Tasmania. The Judging Panel for this award was unanimous in its choice, saying; “In this work, Eddie James offers a multitude of narratives in a soft-focus ambiguous world. Room 18 is a strong well-conceived work with a timeless quality using the body as a disrupter in a transitory, illusory and disquieting space.”

Other-Worldly is a collection of oil paintings centered around the idea that home in its truest sense exists outside our walls in the great outdoors.

In Other-Worldly, Britt Fazey plays with the definition of home and connection to the natural world.  Could the practice of nurturing our connection with the natural world help us to re frame the overwhelming distractions of modern life? Could it help free us and make us more effective participants in our own lives?

I Will Survive is concerned with the stories of caution, superstitions, and instructions for survival that were passed on to Hayley Millar Baker while growing up in the wilderness as a child. The underlying stories in I Will Survive are rooted in early experiences of being in bushland with her parents and grandparents. Stories of myths and warnings of sinister spirits, pumas stalking the mountain range, sharks waiting to ravage you, and witches watching in the bushland.

The works consider the ways that memories shift over time. Carried from a young age, these experiences and stories have become embellished, or accrued heightened emotional resonances – they have shifted and changed in their constant retelling. Some have become completely false memories, others more cinematic and profound.

The stories and memories that are planted as early seeds grow and change as we experience life.

Hayley Millar Baker is First Nations (Gunditjmara/Djabwurrung) woman born in Melbourne, Australia (1990). She completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (2010) and Master of Fine Arts (2017) at RMIT University in Melbourne. 

Through examining the role our identities play in translating and conveying our experiences, Hayley works across photography, collage, and film to interrogate and abstract autobiographical narratives and themes relating to her own identity. Her oblique storytelling methods and methodologies encourage us to embrace that the passage of identity, culture, and memory are not linear nor fixed. 

Hayley’s works are held in significant public institutional collections across Australia and has exhibited nationally and internationally. Hayley has been a finalist in several prestigious national art prizes including the Ramsay Art Prize (2019 and 2021), Bowness Photography Prize (2021), John Fries Award (2019), and international prizes including Hong Kong’s Sovereign Asian Art Prize (2021), and United Arab Emirates Vantage Point Sharjah 9 (2021), and has won the John and Margaret Baker Memorial Fellowship for the National Photography Prize (2020), the Darebin Art Prize (2019), and the Special Commendation Award for The Churchie National Emerging Art Prize (2017). She was selected as one of eight artists to exhibit in the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Primavera: Young Australian Artists (2018) and has been awarded several residencies including the Artist-in-residence at Monash University Prato, Italy (2022), the First Nations Residency at Collingwood Yards (2021), the Photography Fellowship at the State Library of Victoria (2019). Hayley was a feature artist in PHOTO2021: International Festival of Photography (2021) and has exhibited in other art festivals including the International Ballarat Foto Biennale (2017), and Tarnanthi (2017). Hayley will present a new commission for the 4th National Indigenous Art Triennial at the National Gallery of Australia (2022). 

In 2021 Hayley presented her first early career-survey ‘There we were all in one place’ at UTS Gallery, curated by Stella McDonald. The exhibition brought together five pivotal bodies of work from Hayley’s early career for the first time and will tour Australia in 2022. 

Millar Baker’s work is held in significant collections across Australia: Australian War Memorial, Canberra; Melbourne Museum, Melbourne; Bundoora Homestead Art Centre, Melbourne; Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA), Melbourne; Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA), Albury; State Library of Victoria, Melbourne; University of Technology Sydney, Sydney; University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney; Warrnambool Art Gallery, Warrnambool; Shepparton Art Museum (SAM), Shepparton; Deakin University Art Gallery, Melbourne; Horsham Regional Art Gallery, Horsham; City of Melbourne, Melbourne.

What is our future made of? 

In Some Silken Moment, Jessie French explores the promise of algae-based bioplastic, creating innovative objects that are elegant, ephemeral, and oceanic. By harnessing this shape-shifting material, French captures a world in a phase of transition, where the permanence of petrochemicals plastics is reimagined through the soft strength of ecological thinking.  The exhibit will remain on display until Sunday 4 September.

Jessie French

Based in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia, the work of Jessie French explores speculative futures through algae-based bioplastic and water-based ecologies. Housed within an ethos of consumption, sustainability and regeneration, her practice invites others to engage with the possibilities of a post-petrochemical world. Through experimenting with other materials, she explores the potential of closed-loop systems of (re)use and conscious consumption and interaction with objects. In 2020, French founded OTHER MATTER, an experimental design studio working with algae-based bioplastics which engages others in the possibilities of new materials though objects, experiences and futures.

In 2018, she learned to shoot arrows, then became a coach so she could train her audience to shoot at her artwork for the project After Erika Eiffel (ANTI Festival of Live Art, MONA FOMA). In 2016, her collaboration Pony Express created Ecosexual Bathhouse, a touring queer sex club for the entire ecosystem. In 2017, Kronemyer was the first artist in residence at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research. She collaborates frequently with laboratories and received the first Masters of Biological Arts Degree from SymbioticA Lab at the University of Western Australia.
