West Space

Open until Sun 10 July

Watching embodies the sensation of being approached, watched or singled out by animals, and the emotive resonance of these moments.

Renewing mythologies about the cyclical processes of life, Watching embraces both the magical thinking of childhood and the pragmatism of living in close proximity to nature.

Raising a young family in a rural environment, the exhibition builds on the artists’ shared experiences to articulate a personal lore that voices their relationships with other living creatures.

Abdul-Rahman Abdullah is a West Australian artist whose practice explores the different ways that memory can inhabit and emerge from familial spaces.
