ADAM KNAPPER | MIND FIELDS

Adam Knapper uses painting and drawing to unravel the complexities of the human experience. This suite of artworks is a direct translation of the listening experience within the grounds of Bundoora Homestead. This series is process driven, short-circuiting the everyday repetition and saturation of imagery and sonic noise. Knapper is a founding member of the Nimbus studio, an Arts Access collaboration based at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre. He has exhibited widely across Melbourne and is represented in a number of public and private collections and recipient of numerous awards.

George Mifsud
Larundel No.13 (Seat Under Trees) 2005

GEORGE MIFSUD | LARUNDEL

February 1, 2020 - April 5, 2020
Opening: February 8, 2020 - 2-4pm

Larundel is a series of photographs captured between 2001 to 2005 at the site of the former Larundel Psychiatric Hospital located adjacent to Bundoora Park. The hospital was closed in the late 1990s with most of the buildings being demolished to make way for a new housing estate. Only a few remain today and can be seen from Plenty Road, boarded up and overgrown. It was during this period nearly a decade ago that George Mifsud came upon, and began to document, its remnants.

A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you, the less you know. – Diane Arbus
