ephemera
ɪˈfɛm(ə)rə,ɪˈfiːm(ə)rə/
noun
plural noun: ephemera; noun: ephemerum

Things that exist or are meant to be used or enjoyed for only a short time.

Collectable items that were originally expected to have only short-term usefulness or popularity.
Late 16th century: plural of ephemeron, from Greek, neuter of ephēmeros ‘lasting only a day’. As a singular noun the word originally denoted a plant said by ancient writers to last only one day, or an insect with a short lifespan, and hence was applied (late 18th century) to a person or thing of short-lived interest.

Memories and flame.  Essential but fleeting.  Core but elusive.  Enjoy.

The works shown in Presentiment began when Manfred Krautschneider noticed modern art motifs in the subtle distortions of streetscapes reflected in imperfect surfaces.

Sitting on the border between recognition and abstraction, these photographs transform contemporary life into transcendent images.  As Krautschneider states  “For a time I presented successively more extensive distortions, and one could be mistaken in thinking they are abstract paintings at first glance.  They also modify and fragment space, hinting at our own insubstantiality, and allowing a psycho-social reading, conjuring up fears of loss, conflict and destruction.”

This exhibition showcases a selection of works from Manfred’s ongoing series ‘Suburban Reflections’, which he has been working on for over a decade.

Bound by time brings together works by Denis Beaubois created between 2011 and 2017.

Underpinning the exhibition is the Currency project where ideas and logic from economics and capitalism were used to devise and create artworks.

These works attempt to coexist in economic, artistic and ethical space. They unsteadily navigate and question the boundary where the conceptual and the financial cross what is deemed as ethical.

From the precarious nature of state sponsored art funding, to validation of artistic merit from the art market, this body of work looks at the charged relationship we, as a society, have with money.
The second project, titled No longer adrift, Composite territories explores the idea of settlement and assimilation through the negation of the past. It references the theme of migration and displacement from the perspective of the discarded fragment and plays with the formation of composite territories using dust.

Moorhouse is a contemporary painter who expresses her fascination with the ‘found object’ through her love of painting. These collected and documented objects have been discarded and exposed to the elements and no longer function as intended. Moorhouse says,

“The patina of the reclamation process of nature leaves intricate and unique markings upon a variety of surfaces and materials to create an aesthetic value that draws me to these objects and ultimately the process of art making.”

Expectations is an exhibition that combines some of Moorhouse’s earlier work with new pieces that have been completed since graduating from studies. Moorhouse says,

“The title refers to the many expectations that we all face as we strive to achieve our individual goals, but it also refers to the expectations we as an audience have of an artwork and the way it functions.”
