Description

Papillon: Kim Schoenberger
Floor Talk and Morning Tea
10.30am Sunday 20 August 2017
Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland

From the broad oeuvre of Schoenberger's acclaimed work comes the exciting display of Papillon. A sea of butterflies suspended from the ceiling of the gallery creates a kinetic sculpture, counterpointed by a specimen wall in the adjoining room where hundreds of butterflies printed with abstract imagery are pinned for closer observation. Finally, the butterfly is celebrated as a figure of fine art in the third gallery, with a beautiful collection of framed images. Exploring concepts of transformation, each butterfly is created from used tea bags sourced from the community, while the title (French for butterfly) reminds us that this work invokes a new language.
