SPAN brings together Western Australian artists whose work in a range of media crosses divides that are personal and global, political and geographical.
A life-size print of a cruise ship gangway, a series of sculptured industrial engine parts, human hair weaved on a loom, neighbours grooming each other over the fence and a musical performance based on asylum seekers – these works from Susanna Castleden, Olga Cironis, Tanya Lee, Clyde McGill and Andrew Sunley Smith enter personal space and consider where and how we live.
