Curated by Calum Hurley of concurrent exhibition HARD, and curator and artist Andy TT, comes their exhibition soft. Soft is a deviation from its counterpart, offering a sanctuary of ethereal and delicate works and experiences. Situated within an existing residential dwelling on the lands of the Kulin Nation, the soft apartment is transformed into a curated gallery of works offering a sensory experience of space, uniquely curated each day. This exhibition is a tribute to the tender aspects of life, those moments of quiet reflection and the subtleties that often go unnoticed in our fast-paced world. Soft is designed and curated to remind us of the importance of embracing softness in our lives, of finding beauty in the understated, and of the power of vulnerability.

SATURDAY YARD WORK by Nathan Martin is a practice based in Adelaide on Kaurna Country that aims to find a medium between sculpture, craft, and functional objects, through experimentation of material and processes. Nathan looks to the unorthodox methods of production and through this, seeks to find surprising visual and sensory results displayed through form and texture. In the creation of one-off pieces, Nathan’s experimental and process-led design approach aims to celebrate the offbeat, the ugly, and all nuances of hand produced objects.

Jesse Wakenshaw

Creating on Gadigal Land, multidisciplinary artist Jesse Wakenshaw rejects perfectionism in his work as he explores various methods to visually and olfactively communicate identity and self-searching. This was a natural progression from his career as a hair and make-up artist, exploring representations of vanity and self-expression in the post-internet era. Working with both analogue and digital distortion and glitch, Jesse juxtaposes movement/stillness and artifice/reality, often using found objects, owned belongings, natural elements, and the body as the subject matter and form.

Patrick Scott (he/him)

As a practising architect and designer working across South Australia and New South Wales, Patrick Scott’s interest lies in the production of crafted, raw objects and spaces. With a fascination in the whole-of-life design process, objects and spaces are carefully considered through all stages of production and created with a level of thoughtfulness and pragmatism resulting in an enduring quality. Each project is founded with the need for a deep and critical understanding of material and process, allowing each component, material or space to perform to its natural ability.

Understanding how things work is at the heart of her practice, whether this is a sewing machine, a car engine, or sheep’s fleece, things are disassembled to understand their inner working. Current pursuits look to learn as much as possible about and to refine the handspinning and weaving techniques of natural fibers.
