OFF THE KERB
Wallflower is an immersive exhibition featuring nine Melbourne based artists working across multiple mediums and artistic practices. The work collectively explores meaning and traditions associated with flowers and floral imagery.
The term ‘Wallflower’ is often used to describe someone isolated or shy. Visual artists have a history of introversion, struggling to articulate their feelings face to face and instead turning to creative practices to express their thoughts and emotions.
The nine featured artists bring culturally diverse perspectives and aesthetic considerations to this exhibition. It is a celebration of the aesthetic beauty of flowers, but also delves into themes relating to growth and the ephemeral paradox between fragility and strength.
Artists: Andria Beighton,Amanda Farncomb, Mia Emily Freeman, Sarah Lin, Hanna Mancini, Marianna Marx, Emily May, Sophie McPike and Zeno Sworder
