Summary of Project:

Moved Objects traces the collaborative practice of young Australian artists Georgia Hutchison and Arini Byng. Expanding on their investigations into material juxtaposition, sculptural choreography and the photographic still life, the works broach notions of form, materiality, architectural resonance, visual poetics and photographic image-making. Offset against a series of highly keyed backdrops, the works are both astute and playful in tenor. The ancient, organic, plasticised and perfunctory intermesh and intermingle to reveal a string of formal, evocative and sharply referential typologies – be they colluding fronds, architectural gestures or microscopic monuments to Ettore Sottsass and the Memphis Group. Happily suspended between sculpture and image, Hutchison and Byng’s works are in a constant state of considered and choreographed flux. Moved Objects features an essay by Melbourne artist and academic Lou Hubbard.
