Hesitation (detail) by Eliza Adam


Eliza Adam

East Wall, Belconnen Arts Centre

Opening: 6pm Friday 1 December 2023

1 December 2023 – 11 February 2024 

My work investigates time as it is registered in landscape, through light, growth movement and decay. I am interested in how past incidents have a direct and persistent impact on the present and how past actions and energies are retained and transferred in place. The works in this exhibition respond directly to recurrent flooding events in South East Queensland and in the Northern Rivers region in 2022, expanding upon my focus on the relationship between land and water, and the direct impacts of Climate Change on place. Through built layers and simple notation this work presents an environment in a state of transition.
