Exhibition opening Thursday 18 September, 6-8pm
Mid-career artist Skye Raabe returns to Darwin for her solo exhibition home, in Gallery 2. An installation consisting of works on paper, text, photography and in-situ wall panel, home further extends Raabe’s investigation into interpretations of ‘site’, (loaded) space, absence contained within space, and forms of abstraction and temporality. home references the architectural and the performative within the architectural, continuing Raabe’s practice of combining media and her process as a conceptual artist, whilst paying homage to the materiality of her early-career works.
home is an allusion to the constructed, the deconstructed, and the yet to be constructed; both a playful take on home as we know it, and a psychological entrée into the subtle and intangible.
