Belinda Yee – ‘Close’ 2021

(materials: breath, balloons,  glassed enclosure)

Close (2021) is an installation of balloons, each one holding the breath of a stranger. The audience participates by adding a balloon and sharing their breath. Over time, the balloons deflate, filling the enclosure with a collective breath, a trace of all the participants.

The work prompts reflection on our changed relationship with the breath, proximity to others, and the difficulty or danger of being together. It concludes with an interactive audience engagement around a key question – ‘will you come closer?’

Open campus hours until 14 May 2021
Close is closed to future breath donations due to the current COVID-19 situation in Sydney, but its progress to 7 May is on exhibition until 14 May.

Margaret Roberts: ‘When Circumferences became Diameters’ 2021

I set out to use the reflections and spatial ambiguity of the Glassroom to replicate the historic red pillar that has accompanied it since it was first built, and will probably remain after its imminent passing. But the ambiguity spread, turning circumferences into diameters, producing a monumental replication as well—a likeness vertically, but exaggerated horizontally.

This happened because I provided measurements as circumferences, not realising that circumference measurements have no place in the polystyrene-cutting industry, and would be automatically read as diameters. So unbeknownst I set myself up to fail, and I accidentally made a work that is like a project I ask of first year Drawing students, which is to take risks with a system prone to accident, and see what happens.

ANNELIES JAHN: ‘out of place’ 2020

‘Out of place’ is a composition of found studio stuff placed over pre-existing pin holes, at NAS Storrier Onslow studio, Cité Internationale des Arts Paris – revisited.

Open at Glassroom Projects 7-18 September 2020

In revisiting this site-specific work from my residency at Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, these collected objects that are specific to that place, are now rendered ‘out of place’. The peculiarities of a place – its spaces, objects of curiosity and remnants of life – are largely defined by our own perceptions and habits. Working with found objects and materials I explore how these simple things carry the qualities and memory of time and place.

My residency occurred in October 2019 – January 2020 through the
Storrier Onlsow National Art School Residency program.

Aude Parichot – Trace of Passage

Aude Parichot, Trace of passage 2020 (prints on plastic, lamp, chair, tape, ink, acrylic and glass)

Aude Parichot’s practice engages with the unfolding nature of the creative process: how we respond to situations, create, evolve and navigate life in connection to what is around us.

Trace of passage  is a response to the space of the Glassroom oin the centre of the Chapel of the National Art School, Sydney, in January 2020.

Aude Parichot is currently doing her MFA at the National Art School in the expanded field of Drawing and Installation.

Sarah Woodward: Continues

Art is a reflection of the world and it is vital to constantly re-evaluate our understanding of this place and our role in it.

Continues explores space. Both as an intermediary, transitional place leading to other places , but also a dead end, going nowhere. Which alludes to life, of passing through, and yet ending.
