A living studio exhibition
S.A. Adair

Foyer Gallery > 22 March – 28 April 2019

Opening night | 6pm Friday 22 March 2019

This living studio is an opportunity for artist S.A. Adair to inhabit an alternative space and develop work on a larger scale. The resonance of an environment and how we engage with it, occupy it and manoeuvre through it interests Adair as a point of exploration. The artist will bring a limited range of material to work with including stone, charred wood and drawing implements and work with methods of construction and placement to develop ideas. The process will direct the outcome, the scale will be determined by the size of the space and completion of the work shaped by the residency time period.
