Shelly Nadashi

Shelly Nadashi’s new body of work offers a glimpse into her recent history as an artist, sharing with us the new concerns and developments of her practice. Her show develops from some of her most recent commissioned works such as A Good Bowl of Soup, in which producing and sharing a simple meal of soup results in a mediating focal point that is able to bring social ambitions, supposed transparency and the artist’s position to the table.

This allegorical performative act stars a puppet manipulated by the artist in a live setting, where it is unclear who has the upper hand over an audience, if a performance is truly an open process and how uncertainty within disciplines can grow into something productive. Concentrated through various disciplines, her interest is in how objects can contrast their own status, revealing the irony of the conditions and flexibility of meaning we attribute to these objects. Her personal experience is mobilised to make sardonic, ambiguous comments on a wider universe.

A series of events will accompany the exhibition at CCA. Check back for more information.

Join us for the preview of our summer exhibitions on Fri 2, 7.30pm - 10pm, then stay for our Summer Party in Saramago from 10pm until late.

We're teaming up with Tramway to make it easy for you to enjoy both of our exhibition previews on Fri 2. Catch a free bus between each venue and see British artist Brian Griffiths' ambitious new exhibition Borrowed World, Borrowed Eyes, which showcases a mammoth field of sculptures that become space fillers, insistent perfunctory objects to be skirted around or get lost in.

Bus times:
8pm - CCA to Tramway
9.15pm - Tramway to CCA
