Exhibition Opening: New works by Myra McElhinney, Phoebe Beard and Sorcha Mackenzie, Adriane Hayward and Michael Hawkins

Alternating Current Art Space is pleased to announce the opening of exhibitions by Myra McElhinney, Phoebe Beard and Sorcha Mackenzie, Adriane Hayward and Michael Hawkins on Friday 17 June at 6pm.

Blurring the lines between the real and the imagined, Myra McElhinney explores man's increasing disconnect from the natural world in Forgetting. For this latest series, McElhinney reflects upon the immediacy of contemporary living through bursts of pastel coloured shapes and patterned formations.

Taking place in Gallery Two, artists Phoebe Beard and Sorcha Mackenzie form a collective duo in Networks. Exploring the complex and often volatile relationship that exists between environments natural and built, Beard and Mackenzie comment upon issues of sustainability through imagery sourced from these seemingly disparate worlds.

Examining our fascination with the unknown, Adriane Hayward's In the End follows on from an ongoing interest in science, the environment and ideas of dystopia. Be it through literature or popular culture, In the End explores the fictitious diseases and the apocalyptic imaginings that continue to enthral and frighten.

Finally, the multi- disciplinary practice of Michael Hawkins examines how we acquire and discern truth from the inauthentic in an age of media saturation and information overload. Residing in Gallery Four, That which counts cannot necessarily be counted continues Hawkins investigation of how engagement with visual imagery can generate meaning.

Running until the 9th of July, the effect the new will have in shaping our everyday lives is an overriding concern amongst all five artists. In an age of technological growth, the shows each examine how contemporary and manmade factors will influence the natural environment alongside our existing relationships today and in the future.

Situated in the south east of Melbourne, AC is a newly formed art gallery founded to sustain and encourage artistic growth. Our vision is to provide a platform for artists to showcase their work in an environment that supports experimentation and risk, seeking to engage new and diverse audiences via a series of solo and group shows held throughout the year.

Alternating Current Art Space is located at 248 High Street in Windsor. We are open Wednesday to Friday 3-8pm and on the Weekend 11-3pm.
