Catherine Evans’ solo exhibition ‘Standing Stone’ explores the contrast of geographic and human time scales. It was inspired by the Wurdi Youang – indigenous rock formations found in Western Victoria constructed to map stars, constellations and dates. The exhibition uses photographic materials, large prints, and installation sculpture featuring basalt boulders and cello tape arranged to map markings as found on Evans’ own body in a way that resembles the Wurdi Youang.
We captured high-resolution scans of the photographic material for this exhibition and printed this work on Hahnemühle Photo Rag and we’re looking forward to seeing them at the exhibition.
‘Standing Stones’ opens on Thursday the 1st of May with a launch event running from 6:00-8:00pm at BLINDSIDE (Level 7, Room 14, Nicholas Building, 37 Swanston St, Melbourne), and runs until Saturday the 17th of May. Regular exhibition hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 12:00pm-6:00pm.
Catherine will be giving an artist talk on Saturday the 10th of May at 2:30pm – be sure to come along and gain some more insight on her work.
