About

Support materials, soft furnishings has evolved through conversation stemming from an interest in artists whose work can be located in a space between art and furniture and/ or art and dwelling. Instead of picturing the domestic or describing the use value of art/design objects, Support material, soft furnishings will attempt to collect, arrange and re-arrange a selection of works that create a tension between surface and function be that the inane, socio-political, psychological or experiential. 

Support material, soft furnishing uses Kati Rule’s project Site Unseen (which is permanently located in her parent’s home and inaccessible to the public) and an accompanying text by Kate Daw as a way of contextualising the exhibition and its focus around arrangement. Support material, soft furnishing uses the RMIT Project Space–which finds its form architecturally akin to that of a shop front or display warehouse–as a way of framing and re-arranging the selected artworks. During the six weeks of the exhibition, Liang Luscombe and Lisa Radford will alter and re-organise the works in the exhibition to create four iterations of the project as a way of examining each work and their relation to other works through their individual and temporal arrangement.
