This Friday August 11, 6–8pm, the BSA Project Space is showing its second Double Bill exhibition for 2017.

Artist Ree Hegh returns with a material study of intimacy and objects in an exhibition entitled House/Hold. Stay close, move away. This installation-based exhibition poses the questions: How do we respond to objects we include in our everyday lives? What are they and what do we imagine them to be?

Ree will give an onsite artist talk on Saturday August 12, 11.30am–12.30pm, where she will discuss the role of materiality and desire in our relationship to objects.

Showing with Ree is Wall to Wall, a group exhibition of contemporary quilts. Local artists who work across a range of media including painting, printmaking, 3D, jewellery and film have turned their hands to quilts as a way of keeping in touch with each other and extending their art practice.

The BSA Project Space at 112 Dalley Street is open Monday to Saturday, 10am–2pm.
