Tiefenzeit is a work of speculative fiction which is embodied through sculptures and paintings, but also more ephemerally within the gallery by incorporating sound and smell as definitive elements of the installation architecture, providing an illusory slippage in the perception of the space, and encouraging the slowing of time as the senses are bombarded by conflicting information.
In a broader conceptual framework this slides comfortably into the concept of Tiefenzeit; or Deep Time - a geological constant which asks us to consider the continual present in the context of an ever expanding past and future.

Artist to Artist

Amanda Davies, Megan Walch, Peter Waller, Paul Zika

A suite of four solo exhibitions curated by artists presented in ‘rapid fire’ succession across four consecutive Fridays. How might we think about what the artist curator does that is different to that of the institutional curator? This project sets out to examine the variances between these positions and how the personal and professional proximities between artists intersect and influence exhibition outcomes.

OPENINGS: Friday 12 August, Friday 19 August, Friday 26 August, Friday 2 September 2016. TIME: 6pm. LOCATION: Contemporary Art Tasmania.
