Dream Sequence

Amber Koroluk-Stephenson
Eloise Kirk
Jelena Telecki
Lisa Sammut
Nicola Smith

11 January 2020–01 February 2020

Playing on the filmic storytelling technique used to set apart brief interludes from the main story, this exhibition makes reference to theatre, cinema, surrealism, the familiar and unknown to explore slippages between reality and fantasy within spaces where these distinctions remain ambiguous.

Dream Sequence aims to capture the potency and poetry in fragmented states of meaning and understanding through equivocal visual dialogs represented through personal and collective memory, gesture, intimacy and immediacy.

See all projects by:

  • Amber Koroluk-Stephenson’s practice draws on intersects between natural and man-made environments to explore complexities identity and landscape, structures of facade, and paradoxes of taming or staging the landscape.
  • Eloise Kirk draws on the relationship between antiquated art forms and the subject of landscape, geology and alchemy, forging connections between discarded images, fetishising and fictionalising landscapes, proliferating a tangled narrative and the colonisation of images and objects.
  • Jelena Telecki is interested in representation in painting and sculpture. Installation plays an important part in creating a dialogue between painting and sculpture and is used as a means of articulating her sense of personal and shared narratives, the internal and external.
  • Lisa Sammut’s work spans sculpture, video art and installation. With a focus on the nonhuman and otherworldly, she creates spaces, situations and atmospheres that seek to bring human sentiment and natural forces into a comprehensible relationship.
  • Nicola Smith makes paintings looking to the cinema. She is enamoured by the affinity the two mediums share.
