The Hobienale, 2019

Whorled, a group exhibition curated by Brighid Fitzgerald and Amy Jane Parker presented by Constance A.R.I for the 2019 Hobiennale in nipaluna / so-called Hobart, Tasmania. With works by Aodhan Madden, Spencer Lai, Chi Tran, Jessica Quinnell, Nik Lee and Grace Gamage. 

Whorles from in tree trunks, on fingertips and as marked by the dome’s ceiling beams, a shadow over this indoor terrain. Spiralling out from a centre and into the centre. In ‘the dome’, a former forestry tasmania building, temperature and moisture were regulated by a cultivated indoor rainforest. Since being de-forested, the windowed atrium absorbs and magnifies the sun.
