New Project opening at Linden Centre for Contemporary Art

Dear Friends and colleagues,

It is my pleasure to give you a sneak peak of my latest installation project that is a part of the Innovators Program at Linden Centre for Contemporary Art and invite you to the Exhibition Opening!

Exhibition Opening: 6 – 8pm Thursday 22 May, 2014.
Linden Centre for Contemporary Art
26 Acland Street, St Kilda 3182 Victoria

Artist - Jasmine Targett
'Blind Spot', 2014
Perspex and Mirror
2.2m x 1.7m x 1.2m

My latest installation project, Blind Spot, has been a daring attempt to map out a large three dimensional hole in space. A complex and multifaceted anti-form that is as optically impossible to describe as the space inside an atom.

Blind Spot describes one of the most significant environmental discoveries of our age- the Ozone Hole. Like an iceberg looming in space, it is a dark wonder of the natural world, a landmark that cannot be found on any atlas or world map. Its appearance in our atmosphere every spring is a haunting reminder of how we close we come to pushing our environment beyond the point of regeneration.

Finding a means to visually and conceptually fathom otherwise unperceivable aspects of nature, the work aims to delineate the blind spot in perception that fails to make the connection between existence and the systems within nature that support it. Further exploring the tension between perception and visibility.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
