Emerging from the work can be compared to walking after recently removing roller blades, or stepping off a trampoline.
A moment to re-adjust is advised.

Moving into gallery two, Pip Wallis curates a selection of works by artists Ruth Buchanan, Sarah Crowest and Adelle Mills that “extends the gap between comprehension and confusion, unfolding the potential for subversion and new ways of knowing that exist in the abstract.”
The collected pieces, entitled Loosely Speaking, arranges sound, video and sculpture to explore that gap between codified language, social order and the abstract chaos of unconsciousness.
These ideas, expressed spatially, convey infinite possibilities of communication and movement.
Both Lost in Space and Loosely Speaking are on display at Gertrude Contemporary, located at 200 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy until April 27th.
