Caboolture Regional Art Gallery

At a time when many are experiencing complex feelings about the frailty of life and future uncertainty, this exhibition explores the subject of mortality and the inseparable link between life and death.

The exhibition presents paintings, sculptures, installations, and sound works, that challenge us to reckon with death and dying as an inherent part of life, invoking experiences of loss, impermanence, transience, remembrance, memorialisation, and varied expressions of grief.

One foot on the ground, one foot in the water is a La Trobe Art Institute exhibition toured by NETS Victoria. Curated by Travis Curtin. The exhibition has been assisted by the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its principal arts investment and advisory body, as well as receiving development assistance from NETS Victoria’s Exhibition Development Fund, supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.

Come to the exhibitions opening event on Saturday, 16 March, from 10:00 AM and enjoy a talk and tour by gallery curator Hannah Williamson.
