I hope you get this: Raquel Ormella brings together a selection of new and recent work by one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists. The exhibition includes a wide variety of media, and particularly draws on Ormella’s experimental textile works, exploring key themes that the artist has consistently developed in her work: social and environmental activism; human and animal relationships; nationalism and national identity.
These recurrent interests are brought together by a consistent engagement with the artist’s voice. Rather than being the site of authority, Ormella’s voice simultaneously expresses an aspiration for connection, while remaining uncertain about whether the communication will work.
