The Secret Life of Stuff

A group exhibition with Eileen Agar (1899-1991), Catherine Ferguson, Della Gooden, Bernice Donszelmann and John Gibbons.

at Arthouse1

In the 80’s Eileen Agar made a powerful series of rock paintings using photographs taken in the 1930’s and by drawing on memory and the subjective nature of her imagination. The curators of ‘The Secret Life of Stuff’ explore notions of the unconscious, and intentionality in Agar’s work, and in the work of Catherine Ferguson, Bernice Donszelmann, John Gibbons and Della Gooden, where complex meaning emerges from the materiality of the work itself; immanent forces are found in the object and the materials used to make it.

Curated by Catherine Ferguson and Della Gooden
