between and among objects focuses on how we see and perceive space. The work considers the act of looking, visual trajectories, perspective, and visual illusions. Screens, mirrors and lters are all about this—they function to frame and direct the view and also to dislocate, complicate, alter, duplicate and negate. In a mirror for example, we see a space that we can access visually but not physically; there is also a duplicate, a double, which complicates the idea that we can understand something through a singular definition. These devices allow me to talk about perception and how things change depending on position and perspective.

Consuelo Cavaniglia

Consuelo Cavaniglia is an interdisciplinary artist who makes sculptural works that are at once both beautiful and unsettling. Ever mindful of the viewer’s interaction, Consuelo’s installations have no single focal point. Her finely orchestrated arrangements of free standing screens and wall-based works form a choreographed encounter that encourages the consideration of the ways space is experienced and understood. Recent projects include residencies in Iceland and Rome. Later this year she will premiere a newly commissioned work for the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.
