Overview

Canberra Glassworks invites you to the Opening and Gallery Floor Talk Talk of Rosalind Lemoh's latest exhibition.

Born in Sierra Leone and based in Gundaroo, New South Wales, Rosalind Lemoh's artistic practice deeply examines identity within the Australian context. Using found objects that are meticulously replicated in concrete, bronze, aluminium, and for the first time, glass, she creates assemblages and installations. Her choice of objects ranges from tiny seeds or fruit to full-body with an attention to detail and an emphasis on capturing wear and decay. These groupings become repositories of memory and personal narratives.

Influenced by distinct and varied art history, including Arte de Povera, concrete poetry, and natural history collections, her art serves as a means to explore her identity as a female artist of colour, engaging in a dialogue between personal identity and broader societal narratives.
