W boroon­dara.vic.gov.au/arts H Tues-Fri 10.00 to 5.00, Sat-Sun 11.00 to 4.00, closed Mon and pub­lic hols. To Nov 18 Com­mu­nity Project Wall: Frag­ments by Cather­ine Wester­man – Wester­man sets her­self strict pa­ram­e­ters to cre­ate her art­work, work­ing ex­clu­sively with found ma­te­ri­als and on a small scale. Af­ter cre­at­ing over 40 col­lages in the same for­mat, she grad­u­ally added vari­a­tions to the for­mula and the re­sult is a se­ries of process-driven col­lages, where the method is as im­por­tant as the end re­sult. Oct 27 to Dec 16 Main Gal­leries: Louise Sax­ton: The Li­nen Project – an im­mer­sive in­stal­la­tion that pays homage to past lives and past labour, fea­tur­ing unique two and three-di­men­sional as­sem­blages cre­ated by Sax­ton from dis­carded and dis­in­her­ited do­mes­tic linens, which the artist has col­lected over sev­eral decades (see ad page 8). Nov 20 to Dec 16 Do­mes­tic Flight by Ni­cole Cairns – the still life paint­ings of Cairns fo­cus on sim­ple ob­jects or com­mon scenes that view­ers would oth­er­wise pass by with­out a sec­ond thought. Do­mes­tic Flight takes a light-hearted look at our busy lives and some­times chaotic homes, and what it might look like if the lo­cal birds and wildlife in­un­dated them.
