The Abbotsford Convent has become a thriving mixed-use creative venue of late, with c3 Contemporary Art Space cementing its place within the local artistic community. Their current exhibition is a diverse representation of Australian artists across various mediums.

Object Relations (Or) by creative duo Alice Mathieu and Madé Spencer-Castle addresses issues of materiality in modern society, in an installation that engaged contributors from around the world. The installation explores the significance that objects have on constructing identity, community and a sense of place.

Better, Faster, Stronger is the first collaborative work by Sarah CrowEST and Benjamin Woods. Originally conceived for a Project Room at this year’s Melbourne Art Fair, the pair present a re-worked installation of sculpted objects, each in a different state of production.

Heartlines by Paris Tremayne is a series of psychedelic abstract paintings that uniquely convey the emotions and sentiments of the artist, in his words, “My pictures are utterly incomprehensible, even to me, which is perhaps why I continue to obsessively create them. They have an existence of their own and must speak for themselves. ”

Transmissions is a conceptual work of photography and imagery, unpacking the philosophies and traditions of the Spiritualist Movement. Artist Saskia Pandji Sakti’s latest project focuses on the spirit’s capacity to transcend the physical world, even beyond the grave.

Threads of Memory by ceramic artist Ilona Topolcsanyi looks at the artist’s personal heritage, in the connections shared between the generations of Hungarian women in her ancestry. The intricate quality of the clay sculptures are inspired largely by traditional Hungarian embroidery.

Unstable Objects and Other Paintings by Melbourne-based Antonia Sellbach includes both current and older works by the artist. Abstract geometric patterns engage the eye, simulating optical illusions created in the relationship between 2D and 3D.

The September exhibition opens tonight. For more information, visit abbotsfordconvent.com.au
