Devonport Regional Gallery




Tricky Walsh

28 September - 17 November 2019 

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.

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.
