Rubicon Ari | North Melbourne | June 16th - 3rd July 2021
Both reflective and interactive in nature, this exhibition invites participants to engage with light, colour and motion from multiple perspectives as they move throughout the space. Drawing participants to immerse themselves in the presence of light and contemplate the luminous essence of their own beings.
Within this exhibition are two new bodies of work by Jasmine Grace which use light to investigate atmosphere, affect and embodied experience.
Refractions; invites participants to engage in interactive encounters and fluctuating refractions using light and dichroic sculptures. Throughout the space are various physical and metaphorical representations of the light we carry within, and its mesmerising ability to project unique multicoloured arrays of light across surrounding landscapes. Speaking of transition, crossing thresholds, holding paradox’s, scattered moments and choices of hope amidst darkness - the forming and manifestation of unique light refractions within us as we live out the unknown mysteries of life.
One of the feature participatory works within this series is 'Beaming' which has been supported by the City of Melbourne arts grants.
Ebb and Flow; is a series of illusionary light boxes, in constant motion, reflecting the fluctuating nature of life itself and humanity’s ability to embrace its unpredictable nature. This collection embodies the shifting patterns and cycles that enable us to continuously grow and evolve, despite the unforeseen circumstances that come our way. Acting as a reminder that a changing landscape can also be beautiful and luminous.
