On the Edge: Landscapes from the Collection

29 March-26 April

Curator: Kate Hargraves

Landscapes on the edge are not only what we see, but what is perceived to be present. The melding of the imagined, unimagined and real sparks curiosity, narrative and the lived experiences of being within a landscape. Landscapes are places to ponder, places to fear, places to be enthralled, to sense the sublime existing on the edge where the real and the imaginary become one.

On the Edge represents places we are compelled to inhabit but at the same time have a distancing effect. These landscape spaces confirm our existence within the natural world and within the broader sphere of what is known to exist, as well as the unknown.

Artists: Paul Davies, Shay Docking, Geoff Dyer, Neil Frazer, Nathalie Hartog-Gautier, Marea Gazzard, Gertie Huddleston, Alan Jones, Ildiko Kovacs, Mandy Martin, Euan Macleod, Alexander McKenzie, Ginger Riley Munduwalwala, Sally Ross, A.J. Taylor and Craig Waddell.
