State Art Collection | MAPPING


28 June 2008 - 3 October 2011


Mapping explores the physical, emotional, geographical and intellectual influences that shape how we understand and move through the places we live in. 

Mapping includes large-format, horizontal pieces that capture a sense of wonder in response to natural phenomena. These are contrasted with intimate jewellery items that mark the many ways objects map, flatter and frame our bodies.  Positioned between these extremes of scale are works of art charting the mythologies and modes of transport which define our experience of the world.
