Ethereal, tender and wonder-filled combinations of varied materials become inquiries into political narrative. Using methods that include hot glass techniques, glass kiln-casting, pouring and assemblage—leakages reveal themselves as material investigations. The formlessness that refuses to take shape, to behave as an object. These unexpected utopias are revealed against the backdrop of the last remaining island of a critically endangered orchid surviving inside a private golf club on Kaurna land.“I think about all kinds of borders, and how surely they all break down with time. Our land erodes at the coast, our bodies decompose to dust. And the further you move from your memories, the more they seem to intertwine.”—excerpt and exhibition title from Josie Dillon’s text responding to Sally Craven’s work first presentedat Cement Fondu, 2022.Supported by the Helpmann Academy.
