Charles Andre Lemire, Mila Poblete and Aneta Bozic present three new exhibitions at the Yarra Sculpture Gallery, opening on Saturday May 5th from 2-4pm. 

Gallery 1 + Projection Room

'A Conversation #1'

“We are never real historians, but always near poets, and our emotion is perhaps nothing but an expression of a poetry that was lost.”
― Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space

This installation instigates a reflection about space – the space we share, the space we take, the space we can access or not. By filling the gallery with sculptures, the installation aims to question our relationship with the space we live in, how we respect it (or not) and the consequence of our presence in it. But not only this installation talks about space, it also invites the visitors to witness a conversation that doesn't happen, or will?

Gallery 2

'Santiago to Melbourne'

Santiago to Melbourne shows the artistic development, over the last 4 years, of Chilean artist Mila Poblete. Utilising sculpture and art installation as mediums, these works reflect her artistic research and evolution throughout her experience living in Australia. Colour and geometry are combined to reflect the process of making and the state of immersion when fully absorbed in one individual action. A diverse range of materials are transformed into abstract shapes focusing the attention on what it is in front us: merely colour, texture, shape, design, light, hue and form... nothing more and nothing less. -- 

Gallery 3

'Convoluted Creations'

Convoluted Creations is a continuance of an ongoing series of over the past few years, under the conceptual title of unNatural Hybrids.
This series explores the broad concept of the deconstructing, combining and merging elements from the animal, vegetable and mineral worlds to create unique hybridized creations. Predominately organic materials of bones, feathers, shells, branches, seed pods, leaves, stems and flowers combine with wire, glitter and metallic paint. These elements are scavenged and brought together in an organic way, allowing for unique combinations to emerge.These works will endeavour to question current boundaries, limitations and resilience of the natural world. It will allow the viewer’s preconceptions and imagination to be playfully challenged and stretched.
