Archive > Petra Nicel, Caitlin Watson, and Amber Smith: Curio

Exhibition, 3-16 October 2014

Curio is a group exhibition by three emerging artists. Through three very diverse approaches to the concept and to the act of making, these artists display works which address ideas of exploration and curiosity.
This exhibition, though small, covers a spectrum of ways to engage with the idea of curio. This includes the traditional understanding of the term (collections of objects to provoke curiosity), the obsessive nature of the collector, the act of familiarising oneself with one’s own body through touch and emotional response, and the notion of creating as an act of developing visual ideas.
Though communicated through contrasting imagery and conceptual approach, Curio creates a single body of work which explores one word and it's connotation.
