Deb Mansfield exhibition at Galerie Pompom

Tuesday, 27 October 2015

From 14 October to 15 November Deb Mansfield will exhibit Avoiding and Courting Collision at Galerie Pompom, Sydney.

Avoiding and Courting Collision is a series of forms used to map a triangle of longing between art making, men and place. These three things are a constellation in flux for the artist, and are called out to when circumstance and myths fall short. The work consists of hand-cast bronze forms (cleats, bridle-hooks, electrical plugs and circular frames), alongside photo-tapestries of appropriated, and re-imagined sea-narratives.
