INFORMATION

Where might this road take me? What spaces and places might emerge?

Diving into such questions, Bryony Simcox presents ‘Curious Landscapes’ as her debut show, a personal meditation in paperform.

 Both playful and provocative, the collages invite viewers to imagine technicolour scenarios and impossible configurations. Simcox draws elements from urban design, fashion, interior architecture, and travel photography and strips them of their original context. Through an intentionally open-minded process of composition, she weaves new narratives and imagined landscapes, inspired by the human form and the future.

 

Bryony is a designer from Britain, living in Australia, working at the intersection of urban design and placemaking.

Her creative practice uses analogue collage,a self-described form of meditation. From an early age, Bryony has been drawn to magazines, books and found materials, and the hands-on approach of cuttingand composing them into new scenarios.

Bryony also has a particular love of cities,and the delights of the public realm.

She uses design thinking and collaboration to promote places which support communities and has had a number of articles and papers published on Temporary Urbanism.
