'Finding Space' in the Toowoomba Region

Australian movement artist and videographer Kirsty Lee is developing a series of new artworks called ‘Finding Space’.

Alexandra Lawson Gallery (ALG) is proud to partner with Toowoomba Regional Council for this Council initiated Regional Arts Development Fund Project: The Regions.

Project manager Alexandra Lawson states ‘Kirsty Lee will make the work as a response to a series of conversations she will have with people who are invested in, or living in these places in order to identify the beauty and the intrigue of everyday space and the surroundings of a community. An aspect which can become silenced by the continuous exposure of generations of viewing.

Conversations are open to the public and will occur in:

  • Millmerran on Friday 15th February at 9.30am at Forage Kitchen and Coffee Bar, 55 Campbell Street, Millmerran

  • Hampton on Saturday 16th February at 9.30am at Emeraude, 8616 New England Highway Hampton

  • Goombungee on Saturday 16th February at 12pm at Goombungee Antiques & Cafe, 105 Mocatta Street, Goombungee

Please RSVP for catering purposes to hello@theregions.net or to 0418603695.

Through the conversations held in these locations at these times Lee will create work which will reimagine the community’s understanding of their space and surroundings.

Lee says the new video works will be imbued with colour, speed, repetition and form. These visually ambiguous works invite the viewer to reimagine their sense of ‘space’ and ‘place’.

‘The Regions’, managed by Alexandra Lawson Gallery brings local, national and international artists to the Toowoomba region throughout the first half of 2019.

Lawson states “It’s my pleasure to work on this project and I would like to thank Arts Queensland and the Toowoomba Regional Council who have enabled Kirsty Lee to engage with members of the Toowoomba region and undertake this unique project.
