Sep 26 - Dec 12, 2014
co-curated by Robin Metcalfe 

Ursula Johnson’s interdisciplinary practice ranges from fine craft and traditional Aboriginal art forms through performance and installation. Mi’kwite’tmn (Do You Remember) examines ideas of ancestry, identity and cultural practice. Johnson deconstructs and manipulates the function and image of Mi’kmaw basketry, using traditional techniques to build non-functional forms.

This exhibition explores environmental conservation, destruction and the cacophonous blend of architecture and decay in our technological age. Ecotopian fiction is a subgenre of the utopian or dystopian, where a vision for a world is either ideal or a nightmare. An element of the scifi or futurism can be found in some of the work represented in this exhibition, where artists are offering an alternative for postmodern living, where nature and technology can live more harmoniously, without wreaking great havoc on our environment
