Traditionally, the ‘sublime’ has referred to feelings of awe inspired by nature. However, in the 20th century, the notion of the industrial sublime emerged - the feeling of awe induced by machines, technology and progress. Modern Sublime explores this idea, with focus on the Edgell factory. Devonport was once the largest processor of peas in Tasmania, this playing a vital role in the economy of North West Tasmania. This exhibition traces the journey of the humble pea from harvest, to factory and store, through images which celebrate technology, machinery and production.

KATRIN TERTON Beyond Sight - Driftsongs details2 small

 BEYOND SIGHT is a multi-sensory exhibition in which visitors can explore the artworks through touch, sound, smell, sight and imagination.

Katrin Terton’s evocative, interactive and immersive experience contemplates inclusion of the broadest audience by making her works meaningfully accessible to people of all ages and abilities with particular regard to people with low or no vision. The exhibition challenges the prevailing paradigm of inclusion by revealing that the experience of those with impairments is both valid and rich, then including other members of the audience in that appreciation. This not only levels the playing field for participation, it also reminds the whole audience of the benefit of using all of their available senses to understand their world.
