OPENING > FRIDAY 26 MAY 2017, 6-8PM
VENUE: DOMAIN HOUSE, Dallas Brooks Drive, South Yarra
The Opposite of Wild is a new body of work being created specifically for the space at Domain House. It will include one of Stillman's largest 'book sculptures’ to date. Consisting of 100’s of unwanted paperback books, the artwork is made by cutting individual pages with a scalpel to reveal the negative space of an organic form.
Over twelve months in the making, the ambitious installation will be presented as a freestanding sculpture that challenges the audience in its treatment of materials and its use of innovative craft techniques.
