Dean Smith, Installation featuring Crystal Nights 2018 and Sea Mountain 2018 at Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Centre inSkælskør, Denmark, 2018. Courtesy: the artist and Alcaston Gallery, Melbourne.
The artist says: “The ceramics and paintings created for this exhibition have emerged from my residency in Denmark in 2018. This body of work is a continuation of my themes involving fragile, impermanent environments and mirrors the work I made for Pink Terraces in 2017. I was interested in visiting South Zealand in Denmark, in particular the chalky cliffs of Møns Klint to use as a conceptual connection to the once beautiful silica landscape of the Pink Terraces in New Zealand: connecting two fragile sites, one tenuously existent, the other non-existent, at opposite ends of the Earth.”
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 25 July 2019
