In Tandem, curated by Olivia Welch. Playing the role of creative matchmaker, Welch has paired together artists to see what two minds and four hands produce when working in tandem. 22 April to 17 May 2014.
Although artistic partnerships are abundant in the art world, not all are alike. In Tandem, curated by Olivia Welch, began with the pairing of six of Brenda May Gallery’s represented artists to form three duos who have interpreted this brief of collective creation in differing ways. Where Mylyn Nguyen and Todd Fuller have collaborated to create joint narratives of whimsy and curiosity through sculpture, Al Munro and Waratah Lahy have worked in conversation with one another, using aesthetic and thematic crossovers as a point of departure to realise individual bodies of work. Leslie Oliver and Melinda Le Guay have demonstrated another type of artistic relationship, collecting and swapping items with one another that will compose works reflective of their mutual obsession with rescuing materials.
