TINIEKA PAGE AND NICK MAHADY
Memory is inadequate but by making it physical it becomes more inadequate.
Tinieka is a Melbourne-based artist who works in painting, sculpture and installation. Often about critiquing taste, aesthetics and their social context, her work becomes a tightly sewn portrait of collision; a labyrinth of commemorative imagery constructing narratives concerning taste and history.
Working primarily in sculpture and installation, Nick Mahady’s work relies on light and space to create, confound and divide form. Using minimal structures, which often relate to his body’s dimensions, the artist plays with viewer participation through a number of devices, which become more present with the audience in the space. Encouraging interest in gravity, light, movement and stillness.
