Jamie Crewe at Transmission


Transmission are pleased to present But what was most awful was a girl who was singing, the first solo exhibition of newly commissioned works by the artist Jamie Crewe (MFA 2015).

Incorporating text, video, drawing, sculpture and spatial interventions, Jamie's work is often generated from one or two significant reference points – plays, films, novels and more, which are revisited and mobilised in strange ways. The aesthetic and political qualities of these sources, and particularly references to the gay male cultural canon, are considered from a transfeminine position which Jamie describes as ‘both critical and complicit’; fuelled both by the urge to trace histories, identities, communities and desires, and by the urge to uproot them.

Katie Schwab Together In A Room


Katie Schwab

Together in a Room

20 February – 24 April 2016
Together in a Room is an exhibition of new work by Katie Schwab, developed through her time as Associate Producer, part of Satellites Programme 2016.

Katie's practice incorporates textiles, video, ceramics and functional furniture brought together in installations. The exhibition Together in a Room is a culmination of the research that Katie has undertaken as Associate Producer for Satellites Programme 2016, and is concerned with the potential relationships built between people, shapes, colours and histories within an interior environment.
During her time with Collective, Katie has developed her interest in the politics of, and relationships between, craft, design, housing and education. As part of her research, she has visited spaces associated with forms of 20th and 21st century domestic design and craft education, including homes, museums, showrooms, schools and colleges.
Inspired by storefront displays and 1960’s Lundby dolls house design, Katie has created a new installation for Collective’s temporary exhibition space that comprises a new film work, embroidery, handmade stools and decorated floor and walls. All of the elements in the exhibition have been made simultaneously, meaning that shapes, lines, rhythms and colours are echoed throughout the different mediums. Katie graduated from the MFA Programme at Glasgow School of Art in 2015.

Dani Marti Black Sun

Dani Marti (MFA 2007) presents his first West Australian solo exhibition as part of the Perth International Arts festival. Working across video, installation, public art and canvas, Marti combines video and textiles to construct unconventional portraits in woven paintings and performance video works.
These portraits often reflect on encounters with family, lovers and strangers, offering poignant reflections about intimacy and sexuality. The Black Sun presents new hard-woven canvas, audio and video works that are epic in scale, and use unexpected materials including stainless steel scourers, rubber, leather, necklaces and plastic.
