On Belonging(s)

Artists: Alex Davern, Liam James, Amber Koroluk-Stephenson, Jessie Pangas
Curated by Erin Wilson

3 August - 22 September 2019

Official Opening: Friday 2 August, 6pm

On Belonging(s) brings together four Tasmania artists who are exploring how we attach value to objects, and the role they play in the stories we tell about ourselves, both individually and communally. On Belonging(s) is a reflection on how we construct our identity, connect ourselves to place and engage with our possessions, both nostalgically and idealistically, as extensions of the self.

Tricky Walsh

28 September - 17 November

Official Opening: Friday 27 September, 6pm

Fundamentally we live in a two-dimensional world. Everything we see around us is flat images arranged on a continually shifting series of planes. It is Light and its movement around us which allows us to perceive three-dimensionality, or Solidness. It is Space and our movement through it which allows us to perceive four-dimensionality, or Time. Perhaps it is a combination of space and light which will allow us to perceive the next-to-be discovered dimension. Based on recent scientific discoveries about the actual potential 2-dimensional nature of our universe, (a string theory off shoot called the holographic principle) and with reference to the novel of the same name written in 1884 by Edwin Abbott Abbott, flatland is a geometric exploration of our universe.

Tricky Walsh is the recipient of the Devonport Regional Gallery’s 2019 Solo Commission.

Shattered: Anne O'Connor
Devonport Regional Gallery Emerging Artist Program - The Little Gallery

7 September - 13 October 2019

Official Opening: Friday 6 September, 6pm

Shattered glass, graffiti, abandonment, the Royal Derwent is no more. As walls crumble and glass shatters, nothingness is left to signify the many who called this place home. Where are they, the lost, uprooted and vanished people of the Derwent?

Here at the Earth's End

Curated by Erin Wilson

7 September - 24 November 2019

Official Opening: Friday 6 September, 6pm

Here at the Earth’s End features artists from the DCC permanent collection who act as both artists and activists through their practice, whether in relation to environmental, social or political issues of Tasmania’s past, present and future. These artists present the Tasmanian landscape as the site of human interactions, and as bearing the consequence of human actions.
