Join us on Saturday 6 February from 1 pm for a floor talk for Intersections: Two artist’s approach to landscape through dialogue, making and getting lost with Janet DeBoos and Wendy Teakel.  

Intersections will present new works by respected ceramic artist Janet DeBoos and contemporary visual artist Wendy Teakel. The exhibition will include ceramics, drawings, paintings and sculptures which will explore the premise of ‘getting lost’ as an approach to creative practice. Rebecca Solnit’s “A Field Guide to Getting Lost” will be a point of departure for this research. Solnit suggests that people can get lost by simply not paying attention but advocates a better way to be lost, is in Walter Benjamin’s terms, “to be fully present …capable of being in uncertainty and mystery. And (to make) a conscious choice, a chosen surrender, a psychic state achievable through geography”.


Craft ACT is taking precautionary approaches to managing the spread of COVID-19, which is in line with the latest national and local health advice. To attend this event bookings are essential.
