NATASHA JOHNS-MESSENGER

WED 10 MAY, 5.30, for 6PM  ART GALLERY OF BALLARAT  FREE

Using standard materials in inventive ways, Natasha Johns-Messenger examines spatial perception, site and viewer interaction. Through a complex process of imitation, illusion and trickery, activated by architectural interventions and optical physics, Johns-Messenger uses the principles of architecture and optical illusion to build a new, experiential ‘live’ sculptural framework.
