About the Exhibition:
People seek contact and avoid unknown touch, depending on whether they are in a comfortable environment or not. In unfamiliar spaces, we stick to boundaries before exposing ourselves in the centre. We are drawn to familiar colours and shapes, and use them to make connections, tell stories and maintain a sense of safety.
This exhibition uses saturated colour and curious shapes to draw people around the room. It investigates points of tension within the gallery’s architecture and explores the infinite potential of human movement.
AD Space acknowledges and pays respect to the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which AD Space is built, operates and creates. AD Space is a student run exhibition space at UNSW Art & Design. Managed by Arc @ UNSW limited in partnership with UNSW Art & Design faculty.
