Friends of the Drill Hall are invited to meet us for a gallery outing at Tributary Projects to view the latest exhibition and get to know this exciting artists space initiative in Canberra. Enjoy a glass of wine and exclusive artist talks with exhibiting artists Meg Driver and Kael Stasce.
Kael Stasce: artist statement
The aim of Kael Stasce’s practice is to explore the relationship between visual perception and physical experience when viewing works of art. Using a minimal approach, Stasce investigates our relationship to objects and our understanding of space.
Creating from what is intentional and what is circumstance, Make do presents a series of abstract sculptures and assemblages using sheet metal, paint, wood, steel, wire, road signs, and discarded or found components. Characteristic of Stasce’s practise, he consolidates materials, tools and knowledge to formulate unlikely parings and playful materiality. As a study of process and convention, Make do challenges the boarders between common practise and adhockery.
Meg Driver: artist statement
Driver’s practice is inspired by discarded utilitarian goods, happy mistakes, trips to Bunnings and the physical act of making. Her work seeks to restage the gallery space as a site of experimentation in order to observe the interactions that occur between objects and architectural spaces. Her constructed objects resist weight, balance, steadiness and stability; and gesture at the importance of impermanence and flux. Driver graduated from Sydney College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours, First Class). For more images see: https://www.meg-driver.com/
