Lee Harrop: Down Under
September 25, 2021 - October 16, 2021
Lee Harrop will work in the Art Collective WA gallery space to produce new work using the medium of stone, a material that represents the deep time that is our past, present, and future. The title of the work plays on the oft-used term, ‘down under’ to refer to the continents in the southern hemisphere – Australia (where the artist resides in the Northern Territory) and New Zealand (the artist’s country of birth); as well as stone being derived from ‘beneath our feet’. The completed artworks are intended to be durational, interactive, and performative. Lee’s artwork is word-focused and context-specific, demonstrating the ability of the arts to offer an experience that also becomes a form of criticism. Her most recent artworks offer a representation of mining that can be considered alongside the wider global discourse surrounding its environmental impact.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Friday: 11am – 4pm & Saturday: 12pm – 4pm
