Gallery 2: Kim Williams + Lucas Ihlein

11 sep. — 23 oct. 2021

Kim Williams’ art practice focuses on the relations between humans and the natural world. Formally trained in sculpture and printmaking, Williams is more recently involved in collaborative projects both in Australia and overseas, exploring specific environmental issues through the method of socially engaged art.

 Lucas Ihlein uses a creative-practice based research methodology (including blogging, printmaking, public events, and scholarly publication) to explore complex environmental management issues, with a particular focus on Australian agriculture.

 Based in Wollongong and working collaboratively on projects that examine conventional approaches to art-making in a world of excessive waste, Williams and Ihlein present work in Gallery 2 that is informative, humorous, and critical. Through difficult conversations that turn over common practices of the art world, their work prompts a discourse that is difficult but essential, now than ever before.
