OPENING NIGHT DRINKS – Thursday 21 September 2023, 5-8pm

Join us for the debut solo exhibition with Curatorial+Co. by Alichia van Rhijn. Sweet Spot by Alichia van Rhijn presents sculptural works that reference recent personal experiences and struggles alongside early memories of childhood, both before her immigration to Australia and after. Alicha’s forms investigate phenomenological notions, alluding to personal and shared experience, memory, nostalgia, and trauma. Through the use of distilled minimalist forms, symbolic and ritualistic totems are arranged throughout the space, initiating pause and contemplation.

Alichia says of her work: “A combination of joy, pain, heartache, acceptance and perseverance are embodied within the forms. Overwhelming exhaustion and sadness are interspersed with small moments of success or joy. Finding these moments or ‘sweet spot’ to keep going through adversity, underpins the dialogue between the multi-faceted elements and anthropomorphic forms. They are in a constant state of flux – shifting and changing as they span the fluidity of time.”
