This exhibition brings together a selection of new and recent work by one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, Raquel Ormella. The survey includes works in variety of media, with a particular focus on her experimental textiles. The exhibition explores key themes that Ormella has consistently developed in her work: social and environmental activism; human and animal relationships; nationalism and national identity. These recurrent interests are brought together by a consistent engagement with the artist’s voice.Rather than being the site of authority, Ormella’s voice simultaneously expresses an aspiration for connection, while remaining uncertain about whether the communication will work.A National Exhibitions Touring Support Victoria and Shepparton Art Museum touring exhibition.
