Flossie Peitsch’s Belonging: Longing for Place comprises an expanded series of wall-mounted linoleum panels, fabricated and fabric sculpture, and canvases. The event will be opened at 5.30pm on the 13th of May with original audio interpretations/soundscapes by composer/performer Christina Green. Respecting the strong ‘sense of belonging to a place’ related by native peoples around the world, Peitsch (Canadian) and Green (Australian) keenly researched their own belonging. Though neither of them are indigenous to their respective countries, they feel an ongoing connection to each other’s adopted country. Via their combined art practices they delve deeply into the land and spirituality they love.
The exhibition is open Monday to Friday 9am-5pm. Entry is free.
