Opening - Thursday 6 April, 6-8pm
Artist in Gallery - Sunday 9 April, 2-6pm

Project 641 is a foray into building systems which reflect a state of unconscious living. This ongoing exploration is an attempt to come to an understanding of the impact of new structures on a densely developing world using material, line, and object to experiment with the idea of cyclical building systems. 
641: In Situ is a suspension of the spatial quality and visual language impending building systems present to the individual in daily life. 

Jamie is a Sydney-based multidisciplinary artist working between the research areas of both art and architecture to inform a diverse installation practice. Completing a (BFA) Honours and (BIA) Interior Architecture, Jamie’s practice focuses on the systems within built environments impacting human perception and the natural environment.

RemakingUnmaking continues an investigation into the notion that unmaking is a form of making. This iteration focuses on the remaking of a series of written and spoken word texts that document the unravelling of a knitted garment and the circling of memory. Converting linear text into fragments and three dimensional forms.

Christine Wiltshier’s conceptual art explores interactions between hand, eye and thought whilst working with the textile processes of making, unmaking and remaking. She works with a range of materials including text, textiles and digital media. Christine has a BFAHons from UNSW Art & Design and is currently undertaking an MFA by Research.

Factory 49 proudly announces its first participation in Supermarket International Art Fair, to be held in Stockholm, Sweden, 23-26 March 2017.
Supermarket is a showcase for non-profit and artist-run galleries and other initiatives. The goal is as much to provide professional networking experiences and opportunities for public interaction as it is to present the work of its artists. Supermarket aims to offer visitors “an exhibition with unexpected meetings and experiences rather than focusing on sales.”
The ten Factory 49 artists exhibiting at Supermarket have volunteered from a wider group of artists who have been involved and aligned with the management and operation of Factory 49 over the past year. 
They are: Pam Aitken, Amarie Bergman, Annelies Jahn, Ivana Jovanovic, Michelle Le Dain, Pamela Leung, Kate MacKay, Chris Packer, Anya Pesce and Lisa Sharp.
Current Management Committee members Anya Pesce and Lisa Sharp will be representing Factory 49 at Supermarket

Themes of luminosity, the role of edge, the movement between light and dark and the structure of space have long been the subject matter of Magda Cebokli's explorations as a painter. In this analysis she works with small differences, simplified form, repetition and a restricted palette. 
Reduction to the essential is an aim.
