"Another Landscape: work of three women artists from Australia, Japan and India"
2000-12-05 until 2001-01-27
Monash University Gallery
Clayton, VI, AU Australia

Curator Emiko Namikawa from Japan has brought together artists Judith Wright (Australia), Kaoru Hirabayashi (Japan) and Nalini Malani (India) in an exhibition that explores history as witnessed by the inner self, the cosmic life of the body and the spiritual qualities of letters and words.

The exhibition sets out to achieve a deeper mutual understanding of different cultural outlooks through the work of three artists with very different backgrounds. The artists have drawn considerable influence from investigations of the fundamentals of human life; rejecting the social, economic and cultural problems that dominated society at the close of the twentieth century.

Judith Wright's work includes projections of body parts, moving ambiguously in murky liquids and dim light, in conjunction with another projection, with audio, of an evocative water landscape. Kaoru Hirabayashi explores language through the intricate characters of the Japanese alphabet and her work includes collages, an artist's book and a salt installation. Nalini Malani has contributed a video work accompanied by laser print stills that explore the landscape of a widow's memory as she struggles to take care of her family.

An artist talk was given by Judith Wright on 5 December, the video of which is available for viewing by students. Another Landscape is a three-part exhibition which commenced in Japan, developed further in Bombay, was exhibited at the Institute of Modern Art (IMA) in Brisbane, and concludes at the Monash University Gallery, Melbourne.
