Please join us for our monthly Friends Night. This month we have invited designer and artist Elliot Bastianon to discuss his artistic practice at the Kambri Cultural Centre.

Elliot Bastianon is an artist and designer based in Canberra. He has a diverse material palette and will often incorporate scientific and natural forces in the production of his work. Bastianon has a desire to understand the origin story of different materials and how our relationship with resources, geology and industrial processes can triangulate in a sculptural practice. He takes on the role of both artist and industrial alchemist, shape-shifting metal and subverting industrial norms to ask broader questions around the kinds of violent processes associated with mineral extraction that turns raw materials into standard industrial units.

Refreshments and nibbles provided.
