Visit tick­et­ing.tick­etlink.com.au Cather­ine Hunter is a skilled sil­ver­smith who uses a va­ri­ety of tech­niques and ma­te­ri­als to con­tem­plate and ques­tion lo­cal and global en­vi­ron­men­tal phe­nom­ena. All that Re­mains draws the viewer into a minia­ture, highly de­tailed and frag­ile world. Work­ing pre­dom­i­nately with ster­ling sil­ver, ac­cented with gold, cop­per and alu­minium, Hunter pairs pre­cious metal forms with de­lib­er­ately se­lected fa­mil­iar house­hold ma­te­ri­als to ex­am­ine hu­man im­pact on the ecol­ogy of lo­cal wet­lands, man­groves and reefs. The ex­pe­ri­ence of mi­gra­tion is ex­plored in Heather Tanner’s lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion Migrancy and Yearning for Home. A cur­rent James Cook Uni­ver­sity PhD can­di­date, Tanner’s work seeks to un­veil the com­plex­ity of mi­gra­tion through ob­jects and im­agery that metaphor­i­cally un­pack the emo­tional and phys­i­cal iso­la­tion of the ex­pe­ri­ence.
