Exhibition: The Vessel and the Path

The Vessel and the Path investigates intersecting encounters between the artists’ bodies and their surroundings.

Filling the five Assembly Point vitrines for the month of March is The Vessel and the Path, a collaborative exhibition between artists Rie Delange and Jordan Wood. 

Drawing from the physical and psychological spaces of home interiors and neighbourhood surrounds the exhibition expands Rie Delange and Jordan Wood’s shared processual and research ideas. 

The vitrines feature sculptural and textile works that present as an ongoing psychogeographic inquiry into junctions and schisms between architectural features, memories and bodily experiences within these sites.

Rie's practice explores converging histories and material realities contained within specific places to uncover hidden and unseen experiences at play within them. Through a process of restructuring her collected material, she seeks to reveal something previously unacknowledged about her subject matter.

Jordan Wood probes into what we choose to conceal and expose, traversing the spaces between histories, fictions, revered artefacts and the discarded. Her practice acts as a healing modality, creating a composite of collective and personal memories regarding movement, place and bodies to offer multiple understandings and potential propositions. 

The Vessel and the Path develops as a collaborative conversation between the artists in which they seek to expand the shared pathways of their respective research.

Visit the exhibition at Assembly Point, 152 Sturt St, Southbank until 2 April 2023.
