About the artists:
Sean Peoples and Veronica Kent are interested in possibilities of alternate forms of communication. Telepathy and dreams serve as extended metaphors through which they explore alternate ways of being and communicating. Their work is often collaborative: produced with each other, with other artist collectives, with the general public, students and exhibition audiences. Their projects take varying forms such as musicals, dream recitals, remote international drawing projects, epic sleepovers, telepathically curated exhibitions, collaborative paintings and institutional interventions.
Meredith Turnbull’s practice engages diverse scales, art historical traditions and genres – and manifests in connections between sculpture, images, decorative objects and jewellery. She has an ongoing interest in combining sculpture, craft and display through approaches to excess, adornment and decor. More broadly her practice focuses on the related histories of modernism and abstraction across visual art and design.
Kenny Pittock is a Melbourne based artist who uses humour, irony and sentimentality to playfully respond to contemporary Australian culture. Kenny engages with everyday experiences and his own life as a young artist. Happily humble, Kenny tell us "I've been lucky enough to win some pretty amazing awards for my art, but even then, nothing compares to the time I used my left foot to kick an apple through a basketball ring from half court!"
