Tears of Things

Exhibition Dates: 2 - 20 December 2020

An exhibition of installation and video performance presented by Terhi Hakola and Alma + Brett Studholme.

Tears of Things explores universal themes told through the personal stories of three Sydney based artists, who originate from different parts of the world. In their creative practice they are tuned to the “tears of things” and become carriers for the voices and touches of loved ones across the world–across the realms of space and time.

Terhi Hakola has built an imaginary house in which elements and memories of childhood and of recent loss and destruction interweave with dream and myth. Human longing dissolves with the tears of the house; the boundaries between inside and outside, light and dark, become uncertain. It is talking to the house and hearing it talk back.

Alma and Brett Studholme’s work conveys the longing for connection that is physically broken. Through material things, invisible threads become re-established–the hands still hold; the touch still warm. The “tears of things” become an ocean; the separating water turns into a mediator between worlds.
