Brought to you by Tortuga Studios – one of Sydney’s longest-standing artist-run spaces – LIMINAL is a multi-disciplinary visual art exhibition tangled into the stories and heritage of The Rocks.
Liminality occupies the space at either side of a threshold and describes the crawl of shadow or the bright leap of light as it advances and retreats across the space between science and superstition. Ambiguous, disorienting and transitional, it is woven into equinoxes, solstices, changes of season and the folding over of years.
Steeped in folklore, this is a place in which sight, sound and smell are challenged and anything can happen. Its sensory edges are cloaked in wraithlike disturbance, liminal beings crossing the boundaries of time and space.
Iridescent, misted, pulsing with suggestion, this show breathes light into dark corners and casts shadows like confetti. Shivers of light play across a proud historic palette, whispers of sound entice you to investigate, and the scent of something strange tweaks your senses.
LIMINAL features the artwork of some of Sydney’s seminal visual artists.
