10 May @ The Lobby, Swanbourne ·
Presented by The Lobby ·
Penumbra II is the second iteration of a collaborative body of work between Bina Butcher and Tessa Beale.
The work focuses on contemplating what is frequently overlooked in the natural world. The installation exposes textures, colours and forms that highlight detail and offer new perspectives on conventional ways of seeing components of the landscape. These responses range from drawing, sculpture, sound, film, print and photography to documented interventions in the environment. This forms the basis of an installation that aims to create the conditions for slower, quieter consideration of our surroundings and our place in the natural world.

Midland Junction Arts Centre is an event-based facility and open to the public during advertised exhibition hours, workshops and events only.
In an effort to create a context for contemplation, for their three-month residency at Midland Junction Arts Centre, Bina Butcher and Tessa Beale have gathered natural elements and documented interventions in the environment. This exhibition of the results of their explorations creates the conditions for a slower, quieter consideration of our surroundings.
Penumbra is the term for the partially shaded outer region of the shadow cast by an opaque object. Beale and Butcher explore these margins and communicate the effects of particular qualities found in the natural objects and materials they have collected.
Through observations of the movement of bodies of water, textures, shadows and sound re-contextualise our own sensory experiences and interactions in a new environment: the gallery.
