The Agency of Ruins

WAYOUT ArtSpace, Kandos 71 Angus St, Kandos, NSW, Australia

The Agency of Ruins, a collaboration by Sydney based artists Chrystal Rimmer, Belle Blau and Tamsin Salehian, will be opening at WAYOUT Artspace in Kandos. This exhibition is based on three provocations: speculative narratives of material and social entropy; the generative forces of such decay; and how these ruins can be measured within perspectives of the geos and bios.
