CONSTANCE presents: Somewhere, Away
Somewhere, Away is an exhibition of new works presented by CONSTANCE ARI. The show posits a want for belonging, and proposes that distance and desire can lead to a deeper individual understanding of place and persons.
Four Tasmanian artists working overseas and interstate will be showcasing their work to a local audience this weekend, with the launch of the exhibition Somewhere, Away. Curated by young Tasmanian artist Liam James, and featuring work by Fernando do Campo (New York), Laura Hindmarsh (London), James Newitt ( Lisbon) and Aiden Morse (Melbourne), the show explores themes of longing and belonging, and the place of Tasmania in our artists’ psyches.
“The idea for this show developed while I was in Paris for a residency. Living in Tasmania creates a strong sense of belonging and leaves an ongoing impression. I wanted to see how other Tasmanian artists working overseas responded to this feeling,” curator Liam James said.
