Sydney is Australia’s oldest settler city and an important city in the Asia-Pacific region. Sydney’s geography between Asia and the West results in the constant overlaying of different historical and cultural contexts.
The Floating Eye presents an image of a city that is both beautiful and changing. The exhibition brings together six contemporary artists who each have strong connections with Sydney and who offer varied perspectives of the city’s transforming reality observed though its demographics, environment, history, politics, geography and society. New and existing works will be presented by artists Brook Andrew, Shaun Gladwell, Raquel Ormella, Khaled Sabsabi, Shen Shaomin and Bababa International.
The Floating Eye encourages an observation of a city’s shifting references and influences, how the overlay of time and history and our emotions and sensations of a place, give meaning and form to our shared spaces
