Other [Dark] Times

Plimsoll Gallery, University of Tasmania

Curated by Maria Kunda and Paul Zika

9 June - 24 June 


The exhibition is organised around the polarised moods that characterise living in our “interesting times”: on one hand expansive and ecstatic, psychedelic and transcendental; on the other hand, seemingly stalled—time endured, languidly, with a sense of torpor, ennui or petrification.

Some of the works selected refer to the past, some to the future or some parallel time, or to worlds that are excessive, intensified or heightened—to the point of being tenuous or fragile, or monochrome and vacant.



I can see for Miles

CCP Gallery Melbourne

Curated by Talia Smith

Friday 22 March - Sunday 6 May 


To long is to yearn for something or someone, to desire the impractical or impossible. It is to stare out across the tyranny of distance and in doing so discover some kind of empathy in the quiet moments that meet us there.

In Rebecca Solnit’s 'Field guide to getting Lost' she uses the faded blue distance on the horizon line as an elegy for this yearning. Solnit describes that the colour blue of that distance between you and the horizon represents an emotion, a kind of solitude and desire.

'I can see for miles' engages these applications of longing in the form of a group exhibition, using the crisp horizon line of the landscape as a starting point to explore that distance between place, time and desire. Featuring artists from Australia and abroad 'I can see for mile's engages multiple perspectives to commune on the universal language of distance.

Sculpting with Light: A photographic that is shifting



Post Portal Collective blog launched 


The members of Post Portal Collective consist of nine international artists from the United States, Iceland, China, Israel, Turkey, and Australia who began to cultivate a parallel discourse in our artworks while living in New York in 2013. The Post Portal blog is a platform in which we are able to record the transformation of our projects, and maintain an ongoing dialogue throughout our career and across continents. Each artist individually develops work in a variety of mediums, while together we engage in the notion that the camera lens is a technology that has the ability to alter our perception of reality, and subsequently the context of an image.

Please contact us at for exhibition, editorial, and print opportunities.

 Image: Ella Condon, Light Installation Sketch, May 2013



In the light installation 'The Invisible Force', the viewer encounters a somewhat abstracted reflection upon the ground.  When further considering the imagery, they come to see what resembles elements of a figure, morphing in and out of focus from the darkness, appearing somewhat sculptural, and creating an illusion it exists beneath the surface of the floor.  Surrounded by a watery substance, drifting almost formlessly through the water, the image appears to transcend its formal qualities coming to life, whilst disappearing further from reach.

Eon, Alaska Projects, 18 - 22 July

EON is a group show of eight artists associated through ideas of being, space and time. The works included explore the body and its experience, imaginatively suggested through representation or immediately engaged through the intersection of the space and sound of the environment of the viewer. Involving a multitude of disciplines, as a conglomerate the works act out the potentiality and limitlessness of the imagination, an echo of the vastness and possibility of human experience.
