By Theia Connell & Grace Herbert
Opening Friday 1 September, 6pm
Exhibition runs until 9 September
Traversing the Bass Strait and half the continent to arrive in Mparntwe/Alice Springs, Grace Herbert & Theia Connell have come to make some new collaborative artworks at Watch This Space. This is the first time the two artists have collaborated, even though they run a gallery together in Hobart. Their mutual interests in monuments, in-between and ambiguous spaces, feminist readings of sculpture and labour, and occasionally soft vandalism are finally melting together in the Centralian heat. During the long drive up from the far south, Grace and Theia have been collecting souvenirs, landmarks and their observations to develop a series of objects and actions which speak to absurd sculptural anomalies, phallic symbols of oppression, and the strange buzz of the cooler fridges at Shell.
