Slippage is the collaborative practice of contemporary artists, Hwafern Quach and Phuong Ngo. Rooted in the materiality of clay, Slippage examines the cycles of history in conjunction with current geopolitical and economic issues through the lens of vernacular cultures, artefacts, and language.
Vessels That Leak From The Top is a conceptual and material exploration into the intersections of historic events and the role of governments in determining the fate of the ‘masses’. In this exhibition, Quach and Ngo have slip-cast a series of objects from the detritus of war: artillery, mortar shells, and trench art objects collected from Vietnam have been transformed into stoneware vessels, a loose reference to existing Vietnamese vessels held in national collections like the NGV.
Opening Event: Saturday 9 December, 2 – 4pm.
