8 May – 18 July 2015

Elemental phenomena explores naturally occurring events, constructed experiments, and transitions of states of matter, including water, air, light and magnetic fields. Artists Ella Barclay ( NSW ), Robin Fox ( VIC ), Michaela Gleave ( NSW ) and Jason Hendrick Hansma (The Netherlands) draw on a range of materials and ideas obliquely aligned with physics, transforming the gallery into series of propositions, hypotheses and encounters with our own sensory perception and illogicality.
