- What’s on
Join guide Samantha Wilson for a deaf-led tour of Studios: 2022 – a group exhibition featuring new commissions by ACE’s five 2022 Studio Program artists: Shaye Dương, Chelsea Farquhar, Dani Reynolds, Cecilia Tizard, and Ash Tower.
Studios: 2022 showcases the diverse practices and work developed as part of ACE’s annual Studio Program – a fully-supported professional development opportunity for South Australian artists. The exhibition features five of South Australia’s most exciting contemporary artists, and offers the public a look into the work developed out of the ACE studios throughout 2022.
Working across diverse disciplines including photography, sculpture, installation, printmaking and performance, the 2022 Studio Program artists have created significant new works during their year-long studio residencies.
Shaye Dương utilises traditional processes of fabrication to question perceived truths about recognisable objects from the past and the present; Working across sculpture, performance, video and installation, Chelsea Farquhar brings together objects and materials from different worlds to explore notions of the theatrical, humour and the uncanny; Dani Reynolds’ work, which encompasses installation, performance, and video, takes as its starting point an exploration into world records, popular culture, performance, and fame within the context of the Guinness World Records; Working across photography and installation, Cecilia Tizard takes the studio itself as a concept, a working space, and a source of inspiration for a body of work presented through labour-intensive and technically challenging analogue photographic techniques and processes; Ash Tower has been investigating the relationship between atomic technology and funerary architecture, and presents his work as an installation that consists of a wooden decorative reliquary on a wheeled dolly, surrounded by bright yellow radiation shielding panels.
