Magnification, an exhibition by Nidia Hansen
5 September - 3 October
The exhibition/residency Magnification, by Perth artist Nidia Hansen investigates the 40-hectare site known as Yagan Mia / Wireless Hill. Through the lens of scientific applications such as taxonomy and magnification, Nidia’s work examines Biomimicry, metamorphosis, evolution, and communication. Utilising organic materials that reference the natural bushland, Hansen creates biomorphic shapes that are undergoing slow metamorphosis as they age, representing the constant state of transition within this unique biodiversity hotspot in Ardross, Melville. Wireless Hill is synonymous with both the transmission of communication and natural biodiversity, with a history that spans many thousands of years before its time in the 20th century as a wireless station. Textile and botanical drawing workshops, demonstrations, botany walks & science/biology talks are planned during the residency.
Gallery Hours: Wednesdays & Fridays, 10am – 4pm; Sunday, 12pm – 4pm
