Transfigured Matter - Art Exhibition & Opening

Catherine Hearse - Works from the archives

Catherine Hearse is a Melbourne-based sculptor. This exhibition will showcase her collection of works titled Transfigured Matter. 

The works cover a period of almost ten years and draw inspiration from a range of sources, including embroidery, plant science and the destructive nature of fracking. They share concerns about human relationships with the natural world, whether destructive, enthralled or compassionate. We are united by our interdependence and similarities, and many of the pieces are human/plant or human/animal composites. 
The sculpture is constructed with crochet-cotton and wood, and there are crochet doilies based on microscopic cross-sections of plant parts. 

Opening Thursday 18th October - Join us for drinks at 6PM

Exhibition open 18th – 31st October 2018 during Food Coop and Cafe opening hours

One third of all sales will support Friends of the Earth's Quit Coal Collective.
