'The Salon of Infectious Desire'
“O, Save me from the Nameless Dread"

Margarita Sampson

The 'Salon' sculptural & installation series explores an imaginary literary salon where interiors are over-run by growths suggestive of coral colonies, flowers, bark & fungus; the forms are abstracted, multiplied and non-specific.

The Poetic Lens
Blaide Lallemand, Caroline Huf, Ellis Hutch and Genevieve Swifte have been drawn together by common interests that span multifaceted art practices. They have formed the artist collective Relative Constructions in order to create exciting and experimental exhibitions, publications and collaborative projects.

For the exhibition The Poetic Lens they explore extremes of sensory experience through photography, video, installation and sound to create immersive and poetic works of art. For this exhibition each artist has started with photography, using the poetry of the lens through which to encounter landscape and environment. While the end results are not necessarily photographs, the poetic lens has provided a frame, and a point of departure for the artists’ to create beautiful, mysterious and thought provoking works of art.
