Creating cross connections between memory and spatial territories, Hippocampus is an exhibition of sculpture and installation that plays on fluidity of space as well as notions of collective, personal and ritualistic memory through sculptural and mixed media pieces.
Capturing the fleeting nature of memories, Haydn explores how the act of preserving them can be futile, instead potentially leading to their eventual distortion and fragmentation; the idea that memory can be altered to the point of destruction by overplaying it. Occupying the exhibition space as a larger composition of the work, Haydn illustrates the process and vulnerability of our memories; challenging the audience to visually explore the works through unconventional and non-linear presentation to capture the transition from ephemeral moment to a fragmented memory.
Creating visually stimulating pieces, Vanessa forces the audience to investigate and appreciate empty voids and negative spaces; exploring the invisible in a visual world. Using polyurethane foam combined with various materials and pigments to create casts of objects, fabrics and furniture, Vanessa then removes these materials post creation, which subsequently cause unexpected and varying outcomes, enabling her to push the boundaries of materials, and the conversations created between them.
Camilla Bliss regularly draws inspiration from the movement and actions of people - the tracks that we leave and the daily rituals we create, whether they can be physically seen or not. It is the presence of a feeling left by, or within a person that is important to her. Identities are being shaped all the time, either by ourselves or through the perspective of others - even by the physical marks we leave behind as we travel through our daily lives, or those that are impressed upon us.
Focusing on exploring the concept of infinity and memory, Andreaa uses a variety of mediums to attempt to create worlds rather than singular entities within her work, addressing her installations as objects devoid of time; catalogues of fragments of memories. Andreea’s projects are a continuation of one another, they are co-dependent and form a collective history, and her work so far has made use of space as a pivotal condition for form.
