Catherine Truman: no surface holds
A JamFactory touring exhibition
21 September – 18 November
JamFactory's Icon series celebrates South Australia's most influential artists. Catherine Truman's practice is renowned for its diversity and incorporates contemporary jewellery, objects, digital image and film installation with a focus upon the parallels between artistic process and scientific method. Investigating Truman’s 20 years of collaborative practice at the nexus of art and science, this exhibition will be an important retrospective of the multiple engagements Truman has had working with scientists over this time as well as featuring a new body of work.
Truman is co-founder and current partner of Gray Street Workshop - an internationally renowned artistrun workshop established in 1985 in Adelaide, South Australia. She has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and is represented in a number of major national and international collections including Coda-museum, Netherlands, Museum of Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, China, and the National Gallery of Australia, to name a few. Her carvings and jewellery were the subject of a recent major survey exhibition shown at Art Gallery of South Australia.
