This event on Instagram was in response to Covid-19 and the ongoing restrictions on social interaction. Offering hand painted ceramic fingers in a lucky dip allowed a safe way to ‘touch’ and to ‘stay in touch’ without breaching social distancing and social isolation orders. The limited edition hand made and painted ceramic fingers were sent nationally and internationally.
12 February – 9 March
Adelaide Central Gallery
Façade is an installation by Fiona Roberts (Graduate, Bachelor of Visual Art with Honours, 2011) that focuses on the conflict between perceptions and reality, particularly in terms of the mind, body and home. Perceptions of self are contrasted with physical façade. This contrast is extended to include the home, its perceived sense of safety and ability to conceal dangers.
There is an emphasis on the unintended and adverse effects that often result from our historic and contemporary obsession with embellishing, modifying and concealing reality. Exaggerated perceptions become physical manifestations set to provoke and haunt the senses and the mind. Various mediums are used, including ceramics, hair, digital imaging, and household objects.
