Exhibition opens 5pm Tuesday August 17, runs to August 20.
Found Bearings is an exhibition that attempts to reimagine mapping processes through the embodied experience of our environment.
The artists Ali Nightingale, Rachel Sleigh and Samantha Towse have drawn from a shared interest in locating the self through rigorous observation of space – both fabricated and found, ephemeral and long lasting.
Found Bearings expands upon each artist’s personal affinities with the rural and urban landscape of Canterbury, connecting threads of temporality, permanence, and motion in an attempt to explore alternative understandings of the space we reside in.
Ali Nightingale, Rachel Sleigh and Samantha Towse are all currently studying towards an Honours degree in Sculpture at the Ilam School of Fine Arts.
Student Series is an annual showcase of some of the current practices at the Ilam School of Fine Arts.
Student Series 2021 consists of four short exhibitions and runs from 27 July – 20 August.
Found Bearings is the fourth and final exhibition in the 2021 Student Series.
