Inspired by Kati Thanda – Lake Eyre, Febrile Momentum (2023), in its three-dimensional intricacy, echoes the forms found across the lakebed – crusty clay pans in stunning earthy hues. Reflecting Lynn Pavey’s sense of melodrama, the work contrasts the inertia of parched waters with the frenzied energy of the encroaching desert sands in the landscape. They are a mass in motion, continually developing at a pace and unlikely to stop.
Febrile Momentum is on display from 3 August – 24 September 2023.
Object Space is a window gallery located in the window of the Australian Design Centre HQ on William Street in Darlinghurst. The exhibition space has direct street frontage, is accessible to view 24 hours a day and is lit for viewing at night.
