Formally Yours features new and recently made works by seven Australian artists who are engaged with notions of form through their art practice, across a diverse range of mediums, that intervene and activate the space at different points throughout the exhibition.
Whilst in the first instance, the declaration Formally Yours acts as sincere affirmation, functioning as a declaration of commitment - in the second, the works in the exhibition question form across the entire cycle of physicality, from material choice and creative processes, to the exchange between the works and the environment in which they are placed.
Each artist enlists the distinctive limitations and opportunities presented to them by their technical and material decisions, and subsequently have redefined these materials in their work. Formally Yours seeks to surface and make visible, the space at the edges of form. Here in this space there is a critical instability, at the boundary between viewer and object, perception and fact, friction and momentum.
