unSTABLE

Kiera Brew Kurec, Dana Lawrie, Sarah Poulgrain

Offsite project at The Walls, Miami, Gold Coast

2 - 16 June 2018

unSTABLE brings together the work of three artists whose multimodal practices exploit materiality and foreground the instability of their subject matter. Brisbane-based Dana Lawrie and Sarah Poulgrain and Melbourne-based Keira Brew Kurec share the use of humble materials and muted colours that reflect a personal connection to their artworks. While the artists approach their subject matter with different focuses, Poulgrain with crude construction, Brew Kurec with performative ritual, and Lawrie with iterative process, they result in formal outcomes: static video, regular shapes, and homogenous materials.
