19 September - 14 october 2018, c3 contemporary art space, melbourne

Artists: Anna Gleeson, Tessy King, Holly Macdonald, Noriko Nakamura and Madeleine Thornton-Smith
Curator: Sophia Cai.

Floor Plan was a group exhibition of object-based works that interrogated the relationship between studio practice and exhibition output. Curated by Sophia Cai, the exhibition brought together five early career Australian artists—Anna Gleeson, Tessy King, Holly Macdonald, Noriko Nakamura and Madeleine Thornton–Smith—who work primarily with hand-shaped sculptural or ceramic practice with a particular interest in the vessel and modes of display. All artists also share an interest in form, function, and materiality, although expressed in diverse ways.

Rather than a static display of objects, Floor Plan saw the curator work closely with the artists over the duration of the exhibition period to change the physical arrangement and display. Another key aspect of this show was that the majority of the artworks were floor-based, making this interactive and evolving mode of display more attainable and immediately felt.
