Fragments

The exhibition, Fragments, explores specific themes of Identity through the lens of three different artists: Riaghan Waters, Thomas Readett and Alex M. Beckinsale.

The exploration of how our personal identity is shaped by influences such as the knowledge of our ancestors and their cultural narratives. How psychological issues we battle in our own heads can lead to illness and mould the way we express ourselves. Works based on a range of old snapshot photography investigating the quiet and occasionally eerie moments, that these images capture.

Near and Far - Opening

'Near and Far' is a collection of works by three emerging South Australian visual artists, Alex Beckinsale, Seirian Kitchener and Lisa Losada. The exhibition engages with personal viewpoints of the familiar and the unexpected, and recontextualises the everyday – using everything from found images to experiences in nature, the artists move from the personal and intimate, to the limits of the horizon. The exhibition is a discourse on how we access the familiar world, reexamine it, and re-present it through close observation and care.

The Day After The Day at The Unley Museum

The Day After The Day at The Unley Museum

In this exhibition, Alex M. Beckinsale presents a body of work which focuses on a unique series of photographs held within the photographic collection of the Unley Museum. 

These works present the viewer with a peculiar mixture of the romanticised past, and the excessively banal. The figures Beckinsale has chosen to depict are caught in a continuous state of everyday anticipation; forever waiting, watching, for a bus that will never arrive.
