Robert Hollingworth, 270th Planet, 2009, acrylic on canvas, 122 x 168 cm. Courtesy of NKN Gallery, Melbourne.

Seven artists, three shared spaces, a series of exchanges about proximity and distance and the movements in between: a tactile collaboration, drawn together in time, stitch by stitch, line by line, stroke by stroke – a room of haptic knowledge; forging a connection, a hypothetical encounter between the infinitely remote and the intimately familiar – an approximation of human longing; a sense of kinship, boundaries are blurred, lines are crossed, the otherworldly and the everyday merge – distances are dissolved.

Curated by Anthony Fitzpatrick, Curator at TarraWarra Museum of Art, the exhibition features the work of Kate Beynon, Alan ConstableBronwyn Hack, Robert Hollingworth, Cathy StaughtonTerry Williams and Gosia Wlodarczak.
