Fugue Past Event

Presented by Craft Victoria
A colourful assemblage of glass beakers, vases and bowls 
David Sequeira, Fugue

Fri Mar 26 – Mon Apr 5, 2021

David Sequeira’s Fugue represents an ongoing exploration of colour through the assemblage of glass vessels. Fugue’s constantly varied arrangement plays with colour as a medium, elevating objects such as beakers, vases and bowls above their utilitarian status. New vessels are added for each installation, continuing the exploration of the colour interaction as the work evolves. Made in collaboration with JamFactory’s glass studio in Adelaide, Sequeira highlights the relationship between contemporary art, craft and industry, and links ideas of infinity, change and continuity with notions of the everyday.

For this installation of Fugue, Sequeira has invited musician Patrick Telfer to present a meditative soundscape based on recorded resonances made by the vessels when struck or clinked together.

David Sequeira is an artist and curator based in Melbourne (Naarm/Birrarung-ga). Working across media, his art practice combines colour and geometry to explore issues around high and low art, personal and shared histories, banality and profundity, the reverberations of colonisation and the persisting impact of incomplete histories. His curatorial practice seeks to articulate the intersections between objects, time, place and space.

Sequeira has exhibited his work extensively throughout Australia and his work is held in important public collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra. He is the recipient of several residencies and awards including the Australia Council for the Arts studio residency in Paris, the Collex Museum of Contemporary Art acquisitive prize, and Artist in residence at the University of Texas, Dallas.
