Front Gallery

’Erosion of a Future Memory’


‘Erosion of a Future Memory’ is in response to collaborative research activity between Adelaide based Gail Hocking and international Croatian artist Nikolina Butorac for exhibiting at FELtspace Adelaide December 2021 AND Gallery Cekao – Cultural Centre University of Zagreb, Croatia April 2022

Truth is an emotion, it flows through our body. Veins, chest, heart. And the question is how much do we hear her rustling, her warmth melting our in our chests. We bathe in a storm of warm and cold that murmurs and shakes under the flash of the thunder that revives and changes us. To accept the new means to enter the struggle. TEXT: Nikolina Butorac

We want to materialize a sequence of different memories, which form activities that honestly depict the current state of the planet and us, through the gesture of writing, poetry, drawings, ephemeral interventions, performances and sculptural objects that can shape boundaries, indicate trajectory, and enable views.

The accidental audience is the seed of reality that processes the artistic act, thereby growing together with the artist. Art activity can express the elements of truth in the culture, so every time a work of art is created, new meanings are rewriting old ones.

Back Gallery

‘I’ve Been Trying to Reach You’


I’ve been trying to reach you 'is a consideration of communication and miscommunication; a plan that has been altered by difficulties in sharing space as of late. In lieu of face to face contact, we, like everyone else, have been communicating via other means. In attempting to push past the impersonality of the screen, we tried letters, we tried smoke signals but settled upon semaphore as a communicative act that embodied the sentiments we were trying to convey, embodied practice as it is.

‘Water Bodies’


Water Bodies is a media technologies experiment, an ecological essay that the artists wrote and produced collaborating remotely from Buenos Aires, Kosovo, New York, and Río de Janeiro. Water was selected as an environmental element, but also as a feeling, as a problem, and as a private space. Water Bodies discusses the political issues of water, water as movement, water as closeness, water as fire. Water Bodies is also about divorce: the separation from a loved one and the separation from hometown after migrating to a new, unfamiliar culture. The artists translated their thoughts and insecurities as inhabitants of very different and complex terrains, and expressed these in a digital poem that reflects the various faces of water on the planet.
