Stella Rosa McDonald has kindly named Deep Solitude the Art Life’s show of the week!
We are forever speaking on behalf of nature, but what if it could articulate itself in terms we could readily understand? Kingston imagines nature sighing—as her small soft sculptures of rocks do when they are prodded. In the large landscape photograph Tree Island, (2015) Kingston takes a prosaic scene and casts it in a utopic light; the image of the almost conspiratorial meeting of trees in a field suggests the personhood of the natural world. As we continue to be drawn to the freedoms of the natural and virtual worlds, the protections, privileges and freedoms of both realms remain contentious issues. ‘Deep Solitude’ doesn’t pit nature and technology against each other; rather it suggests the potential for dialogue between these two organic systems.

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be involved in the launch exhibition of the 504 Projects, St Leonards. This new space includes a gallery, studios and workshop area. This installation includes recent work from her residency at Arteles Creative Centre, in which the artist explored solitude and technological absence in rural Finland. The site-specific installation includes the Grace+ neon developed for her MFA graduate exhibition in 2012.
Also exhibiting in this group exhibition is:

This Friday I will be speaking on the topic of how to engage with art for the uninitiated, this means everything from what to do when you’re in the gallery, and what to start to look for when you’re viewing the work. If you’re an artist, his is a perfect opportunity to bring your Mum, Child or Significant Other who might be shrugging their shoulders when you drag them along to openings.

Michelle dropped by Archive_ Space to view Here You Are for CNET, the leading source for technological news and trends.
“If you could visualise your friends’ favourite hang-out spots in your area based on information collated from Facebook check-ins, what would it look like? For artist Grace Kingston, it looks like a collection of plumb bobs or fishing sinkers suspended from the ceiling, swaying or twisting gently in the air currents. It looks like a series of selfies and a garish LED sign flashing on the wall. “
