Intro
Lots of new images to enjoy from Rock Solid - a multifarious and playful exploration of material fictions and imagined truths in the relationships between objects, sculpture and the body.
Rock Solid brings together a diverse group of 11 established visual artists. While the relationship of sculpture and installation to the body is often experienced as tacitly submerged or surrounded, this project asks the artists to make works that are at a scale that can be worn on the body. In their broader practices each artist displays an inherent sensitivity towards materials and a conceptual engagement with the art-making process. They investigate interests and ideas as far ranging as the exploration of the history of sites and objects; rare and endangered species and musique concrete, geometry, and spatialised sonics. Rock Solid is a multifarious and playful exploration of material fictions and imagined truths in the relationships between objects, sculpture and the body.

Rock Solid is curated by Meredith Turnbull.
