Bowerbank Ninow presents Image Atrophy by Andrew Beck and Something other, held in common by Hannah Valentine.

The opening of these exhibitions marks the launch of Bowerbank Ninow's new premises at 10 Lorne Street. This event promises to be a night to remember, supported by Brothers Beer and Sunny Town Restaurant, with more collaborators to be announced. Both exhibitions open at 6pm on August 8 and will run concurrently in the new double gallery space.

Hannah Valentine’s exhibition takes as a starting point the influential modernist landscape works of Toss Woollaston, expanding into an exploration of tactility, the relationships between materiality and the body, and how art can engage with the idea of landscape when the dominant narratives around the natural world centre on its fragility and precarious future. To this end, Valentine deploys cast bronze sculptural objects in relation to paintings from the Woollaston estate, creating a fascinating web of dialogues and connections.

Andrew Beck’s practice exists in a liminal zone between photography, printmaking and collage. His paper-based works use photograms as a starting point, creating nebulous tonal fields or ethereal gradients, which are then reconfigured as elements in abstract compositions. These works engage with the legacy of avant-garde and abstract photography while also referencing minimalist painting, navigating the tensions between space, light and surface inherent in these historical analogues.

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
