Genius Loci


Canberra Glassworks Australian Capital Territory Until 3 June, 2018

A group exhibition filtering the classical concept of ‘genius loci’ – the protective spirit of a place, through the thematic prism of the Australian landscape. Artists employ the medium of glass to explore physical and abstracted environmen­ts and the complexity of the natural world. From cultural and spiritual connection­s to place, environmen­tal issues and the evolution of rural and urban landscapes, the presentati­on traverses a variety of topics to challenge the viewer’s perception of what a landscape is, and can be.
