BODY SPACE draws together six artists from Canberra, whose work utilises a broad range of media including glass, wood, metal and clay. Referencing architecture, the body and the spaces in between, and embodied in small scale sculpture and wearable pieces, these six artists bring a diverse range of cultural and personal interests to bear on one of the most important issues facing our expanding population. The place of the body in a heavily built environment, and how these separate but interconnected spaces affect one another, is of interest to anyone living in a 21st century city. By experimenting with scale and wearability, these artists use material languages to approach the discussion, inviting the viewer to imagine themselves into the spaces and bodily scenarios these works create.

Kristina Neumann hails from Canberra and is currently studying honours in Gold and Silversmithing at the ANU School of Art. She's recently had a successful solo show at Kin Gallery, is currently on a residency at Sturt Craft Centre and will be part of a ANU showcase, 'talking points' at Radiant Pavilion in Melbourne.
