‘It's Nothing Personal’ emerges from the ether of aimlessness; a shared community of care that exists between the volunteers at Seventh Gallery.

Embracing the eclectic range of artists and their works, the show looks to scrutinise mundanity, chaos and fragility. The works conflictingly feel both intensely personal and not, all at once. A life is small yet important, derived from and bound to the impersonal systems in and around us. Each artwork is a peek through a stained glass window into the volunteer's singular and complex life. The labour involved in volunteering can be largely unseen but is closely felt and embraced. In ‘It’s Nothing Personal’, the impersonal is tender, detached and intimate.

‘It’s nothing personal’

a phrase to ostensibly avoid personal offence in conflict. Our political system purports to be inoffensive in its impersonality.  When in fact politics is intensely personal. Community and division. Collective and individual.


It’s Nothing Personal reveals it’s internal irony- that all art is personal, and in turn, all that is personal is universal.

With works by Aisyah Kirana, Claudia Phillips, Alanna Baxter, Rua Miles, Greta Miller, Astrid Woronczak, Lani Knezevic, Isabel Trufas, Blue, Emily Schlumberger, Katie Shaw, Ella Peck, Sibylla “Billie” Robertson, Emily Song, Catherine Weng, Saph Kerr, Sophie Rowatt, Liv McGregor, Minnie Park, Isobel Dew, Katy Tomiak, Chrishan Aloysious, Drew Quinn, Gita Zimmermann, Tabitha Glanville + Bea Yu
