Three Emerging Projects

It's a good moment for Asian Art in Sydney right now. The Art Gallery of New South Wales cottoned on to its magnificence a while back, with their now no-longer new Asian Galleries. The White Rabbit Gallery continues to offer an enormous private Asian art foundation near the city's centre. And just across the tram-tracks from the back of the Capitol Theatre is Gallery 4a, the Asian Australian Artists' Association's gallery of rotating contemporary Asian art. This month they bring together artworks built from stranger fabrics with the show Three Emerging Projects.

Emerging from contemplations of the self and its surrounding social web of expectations, Cyrus Tang, Shalini Jardin and Tracy Luff are using cardboard constructions, hair and single-celled organisms to get their artistic muse expressed. Tang's work tends to focus on dislocation, while Luff has hewn a strange forest with mangroves hips from corrugated cardboard, which greets you by the door. (Using similar techniques to a Camper store's odd furniture, but with more ambition.) 4a is eager to lure you in amongst the weird substance these artists have unleashed, and it won't release you from them unsatisfied.
