A study in shearing and stretching
Sophie Neate

“A Study in Shearing and Stretching” is a new series of works examining the way our bodies move and engage with forms that are designed to perform a physical interaction with the land. Growing up on a remote property in central Victoria, Sophie Neate work draws on agricultural equipment, farming systems and endless conversations about droughts, floods, weather, history, animals and food production. This exhibition has developed from an on-going enquiry, which looks at the physical and the emotional resonances of material, body and landscape.
