Place can refer to a special geographical place, where you were born or where your ancestors are from or a location where formative years were spent. Belonging to a ‘place’ and a sense of authentic human attachment is a universal human trait. It can refer to a home, studio or a space that nurtures creativity: fostering experiments, successes and failures. Or ‘place’ can allude to your status in society and the hierarchy of circumstance.

In this small group exhibition three Sydney based artists come together to explore the ‘notion of place’. Artists Graeme Bannerman, Matina Bourmas and Zara Collins will create work which reflects personal interpretations of ‘place’ within their individual art practices.

The ‘There is no there there’ exhibition features delicate enamel jewellery, miniature figurative sculptures, ceramic pendants and contoured clay forms.
