20/40 Degrees of Separation

This exhibition explores how disparate climates, weather, landscapes, and human belonging in place, can be expressed through material investigations and bodily movement. Wren Moore developed this expansive new series through her Doctoral fieldwork in 2021 and 2022. Moore spent half her life in North Queensland (at the 20th latitude of Australia) and in Tasmania (at the 40th latitude). The basis for her research and exhibited artwork is her internal and locational migrations between these two regional zones.

Through critical engagement with place theory, contemporary jewellery theory, wayfaring and material making, 20/40 Degrees of Separation translates the landscape and topographies of both place and self in new and innovative ways.
