Un- natural Matt Newton, Brighton Bypass Demo Series, 2011

…human thought and experience is essentially grounded in the corporal and the concrete, and is therefore also intimately connected with the environment world in its particularity and immediacy.
J.E Malpas on Merleau-Ponty (1999)

For many artists Heidegger’s theme of having a sense of ‘being-in-the-world’ and J.E Malpas’s writings on the intimate connection to environment and place have been an on-going source of inspiration and exploration. This sense of awareness and connection to environment and place is particularly strong within the Tasmanian psyche and is highly celebrated within the Tasmanian landscape genre. What happens, however, when these relationships and connections do not follow a straightforward and obvious path? What happens when these relationships are strained, forced and even, not there at all? The exhibition un-natural proposes to explore, through a variety of interpretative relationships, the other side of this seemingly natural connection.
