Out of Place reflects on our increasingly precarious notions of place and belonging, by examining contemporary artworks that embody, transpose and reconfigure a sense of locality in a globalised world. Through the isolation of fragments - alienated and re-materialised as objects, stains and other obscure surface impressions - artists in this exhibition trace-about the conditions that create and define distances, highlighting the powerful dissonance between site and identity, place and authority. These strategies of dislocation serve to reveal specific relationships defined by adjacency and imbalance, recognition and oblivion.
