Snugly nestled in the hubbub of Parramatta Road, Leichhardt, is the Articulate Project Space which is currently hosting the innovative project, Fair Isle.
The show is a revolving exhibition of works from 30 artists. The first stage features, Bettina Bruder, Fiona Davies, Fiona Kemp, Rose Anne McGreevy, Alan Rose and Helen L. Sturgess.
Bruder’s Diagrammatic Entanglements, is a mass of cobweb strings which greets the viewer at the entrance. The labyrinth teases the eye with its playfully colourful fibres.
In contrast Fiona Davies’ Memorial /One Shift November 30, 2000, is deeply and personally emotional. A display of red buttons signifies the role blood played in the death of her father. It is a singular comment on the intersection of medicine and domesticity.
Other contributions are equally enticing and it is the diversity of this presentation which suggests that each iteration of Fair Isle will be a tantalising taste of creative talent. (LR)
