THEA COSTANTINO, REBECCA DAGNALL AND ANNA NAZZARI
10 NOVEMBER – 9 DECEMBER
Trespasses is a group exhibition by Thea Costantino, Rebecca Dagnall and Anna Nazzari that explores an ambivalent relationship with Australian places and colonial history through the lens of the Gothic.
The Gothic is a pervasive mode for exploring anxieties about the Australian settler- colonial experience, particularly the settler’s struggle between the knowledge of colonial violence and the imperative to repress its memory by displacing it defensively onto the landscape.

MONIQUE TIPPETT SHADOW LANDS
10 NOV – 9 DEC
ENGINE ROOM 1
Tippett’s unique works on wood capture the moods of the South West forest through the reflection of light and shadow. Each piece transcends the two dimensional image, spanning the gap between sculpture and painting. The works are enigmatic, finely crafted objects that hold the viewer in place and asks them to consider their own relationship with the natural world.

SOPHIA SZILAGYI PAST PLACES
10 NOV – 9 DEC
ENGINE ROOM 2
Sophia Szilagyi’s images have an ethereal atmospheric beauty and draw on a long tradition of depicting beauty and the sublime in nature. Her prints are not merely pretty or sentimental; they are as much about the power and danger of nature as they are about a search for beauty and truth communicated through images of the natural environment. They have an internalized topography, giving form to unseen emotional and imaginative experiences.
