Lamington Drive is pleased to present Tactile Space – a collection of sculptural forms by artists Abbey Rich, Emmy Webbers, Lawn Bowls, Madeleine Thornton-Smith and Mud Top. Curated by Shena Jamieson.The featured work ranges from small scale structures and wall-based reliefs to large freestanding fabricated tables across a range of materials including glass, wood, metal and ceramics.Navigating the work on display, seeing it from multiple vantage points and imagining the tactile qualities of the surface, weight, mass and volume was theorised by Herbert Read in The Art of Sculpture (1956) and remains relevant to contemporary works. Rather than physically touching the artwork, the ability to imagine these tangible qualities and be moved by them provides a respite from the disembodied digital ai realm and reconnects us with the physical feeling space.Join us next Fri Jun 28, 6–9pm for the opening, drinks sponsored by Molly Rose Brewing. Exhibition continues until Sat Aug 3, 2024.Artwork by:

Lamington Drive recognises the continuing connection of Collingwood to its traditional owners. We remain ever inspired by the historical and contemporary artwork produced by First Nations artists, as a tool for the transformation of cultural knowledge. We honour Elders, past and present, and acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
