Things that shouldn’t last

28 January - 12 February 2023
Brunswick Street Gallery
Things that shouldn’t last presented an ongoing exploration into how the narrative of a moment shifts once it has been translated into an object. Where a painting reflects the contemplation of many hours – a instant film frame captures a second. Here they ruminate on memory and the experience of intimacy.

Things that shouldn’t last was supported by the Australian Government’s Arts and Cultural Development Program, Regional Arts Australia and Regional Arts Victoria.
