Nicholas Folland // Outside In
September 29, 2021 - October 16, 2021
Nicholas Folland reinterprets the ordinary and banal. Utilising common domestic materials, repurposed furniture, natural fibres, taxidermy and ice, Nicholas manifests fables of historical reference, exposing cultural differences and tapping into our individual and accumulated sense of identity. By marrying his sculptures with natural elements (ice and heat) he gives agency to these objects, offering an opportunity for continued action and reflection. He is captivated by his own family’s historical journey to Australia and references the extreme climates and sometimes ill-fated journeys of explorers.
Based in Adelaide, South Australia, Nicholas has a Master of Visual Arts from the University of Sydney and a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the University of South Australia. His work has been included in numerous high profile exhibitions and recent works were acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Friday: 11am – 4pm & Saturday: 12 – 4pm
