Exhibition Dates: July 17 - August 3, 2024

Alannah Borg


Focused on the intricacies of silver fragments, 'Silverfish' delves into the intimate and purposeful details, interconnections, and residual imprints that shape our experience. Through a homogenous collection of sculptural, ceramic, and photographic mediums, this showcase inherents a sense of fluidity that characterises the varying rhythms threading through our lives.

Alannah Borg is a Melbourne based sculptural artist. Her work predominantly focuses on small details with traces of memory and the feminine lens through natural and raw mediums such as wood, silver and paper.

Misako Nakahira


Misako's recent works are primarily stripe-based tapestries. Historically, stripes have been used to draw attention, and she is particularly intrigued by this. Additionally, her previous works are predominantly composed of yellow, a color that not only captures attention but also conveys a sense of happiness. During her stay in Melbourne, Misako actively incorporated the techniques she learned at the Australian Tapestry Workshop, where she was an artist-in-residence, to explore new ways of creating colors for her work. She sought to discover new colors to incorporate into her art, experimenting with patterns inspired by everyday discoveries and exploring the interaction of colors.

The exhibition title, "INTERACTION," signifies not only the overlapping of lines and colors but also the relationships between people and objects. It is fluid and never stops, like a towel swaying in the wind.
Misako Nakahira is a textile artist based in Kyoto, Japan. She holds both a bachelor's and a master's degree from Kyoto University of Art. In 2023, she was selected as an overseas fellow by the Pola Art Foundation, which allowed her to spend a year in Melbourne for textile research and creative production. During the same year, she was also chosen as an artist-in-residence at the Australian Tapestry Workshop, where she continued her work. This exhibition showcases the works she created during her time in Melbourne.

June 2023 to June 2024

‘June 2023 to June 2024’ is a study how plants change with the seasons, and a reflection on the universal theme of impermanence. Each of the 12 coloured pencil drawings in this series is a response to a seasonal change observed in plant life in inner city Naarm / Melbourne over the past year.

This project is the fourth solo show by emerging visual artist Katie Starkey. Katie lives and makes art on Wurundjeri Country. She is currently a studio artist at River Studios, managed by Creative Spaces.
