Alison Desmond, Max Sharam & Elizabeth Winter: Between Worlds

  • Art Gallery of Ballarat Lydiard Street South Ballarat (map)

Between Worlds explores the proposition that artists are pioneers who push through frontiers, inviting us to think about what we ‘see’, and why and to take a closer look at our beliefs about and attitudes to the personal, social and natural worlds.

Alison Desmond writes about art and makes art about language. Here she illustrates a series of animated psychodramas populated by anthropomorphic and imaginary creatures.

Interdisciplinary artist and animator, well known for her theatrical music and performance, Max Sharam is often ‘between worlds’, Living between Manhattan, Berlin and rural Victoria. Her work oscillates between uncanny and camp.
