    ZILVERSTER (Goodwin & Hanenbergh)

    Zilverster is a collaborative project between renowned Melbourne-based artists Sharon Goodwin and Irene Hanenbergh. Initially established in 2010 as a problem solving exercise, the collaboration has evolved into a rich practice that extends the discursive and process potentialities of each artist’s work. Zilverster creates intricate drawings, sculptural objects and spatial installations that navigate shared interests in (art) history, fantasy, cult iconography, alchemy and supernatural phenomena.

    Zilverster’s work engages ideas around utopian thought, exploring actual and fictional European histories – often expressed through the Esperanto language – while playfully disturbing traditional distinctions between high and low art forms, with the inclusion of snippets of conversation between the artists and everyday minutiae as well as numerous pop-cultural references.

     Zilverster is represented by Sarah Scout Presents

    REBECCA DELANGE

    Rebecca Delange utilises sculpture and photography to investigate and problematise the mutability and entanglement of form, material and meaning.

    Delange seeks to articulate an object/material language that looks at disrupting traditional categories of meaning though strategies of collage, assemblage and spatial arrangement applied to sourced and repurposed materials and objects—and how this can potentially action a type of semiotic and phenomenological slippage evoking unseen narratives and new knowledge for the viewer in the material outcomes of the work.

     Her practice looks at the poetic—things known and felt yet evading direct visual perception and representation, unseen and unspoken experiences—and how can these things can be made manifest in the material.

     Rebecca Delange is a PHD candidate at RMIT University in the School of Art. In 2015 she completed Master of Contemporary Art with first class Honours at the Victorian College of the Arts. Recent exhibitions include Knot Not at Bus Projects and Alpha Beta Whatever at Notfair.  Last year she lived and worked in Germany and Italy for 5 months undertaking field research for an upcoming project, Shut Up Mountain, at C3 Contemporary Art Space in 2019

  • PHEBE PARISIA

    PHEBE PARISIA

     

     Phebe Parisia is an artist and jewellery designer based in Melbourne AU.

    Phebe generates large scale abstract installations and assemblages that examine the relationship between materiality, action and affect. Her works feature evolving assemblages and configurations of utilitarian synthetic materials including synthetic industrial fabrics, nylon objects and permanent marker actioned repetitive line worked panels. The works often involve the creation of temporary structural devices or motifs such as screens, walls or altered picture frames within the space, which ‘perform’ a permanence or solidity. However, this sense of stability in the work is undermined by soft fabric, seemingly impermanent or unstable additions and the visually jarring patterns enacted by the artist’s obsessive process of line drawing. Invoking historical precedents including Process art and Minimalism, Parisia’s work expresses an anxious integration of seemingly binary visual forms or experiences.

    Parisia holds a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) Hons, RMIT University 2007, Master of Cultural Material Conservation, The University of Melbourne 2011, Master of Contemporary Art, Victorian College of the Arts, The University of Melbourne 2017. She has regularly exhibited in Australia and overseas. Her artwork is held in private collections in Australia, Iceland and Finland. 

    She was recently commissioned by the NGV Design Store at the National Gallery of Victoria for two exclusive jewellery collections. In 2019, Phebe established the label Prenta X.
