Pat Foster & Jen Berean

Pat Foster & Jen Berean have been working collaboratively since 2001. Employing a diverse and lateral array of media and processes, their work unpacks the hidden systems that make up the sites and infrastructure that surrounds us. Within such thinking, contemporary architecture is deconstructed to such a degree that it is not solely concerned with the making of functional and utilizable space, but crucially, the determination of how, and by whom such space is used by, and for what purpose. It is within the juncture of physical environment and psychological effect that their practice is primarily concerned and manifests within an art context.

Pat Foster (born 1981, Launceston, Australia) and Jen Berean (born 1981, Calgary, Canada) predominantly work in sculpture and installation. Foster received a BFA from the Victorian College of the Arts at The University of Melbourne in 2005 and Berean received a BFA and an MA in Architecture from The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University. Recent solo exhibitions of their work have been held at The Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne; Murray White Room, Melbourne; and Pallas Projects, Dublin. They have been exhibited their work in the following exhibitions The Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art; The Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; Sequester, Embassy of Australia, Washington DC; and NEW 09, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne.

Kiichiro Adachi

Kiichiro Adachi’s sculptures look like experimental devices. At first glance, they seem to be functional objects. He attempts to understand the structure and the origin of the world through the devices he creates.

Adachi’s work has been exhibited in the following exhibitions Meets ART-the casket of the forest, Hakone Open-Air Museum, Japan; Trans-Cool TOKYO: Contemporary Japanese Art from MOT Collection, Taipei Fine Arts Museum and Singapore Art Museum, 2011; Busan Biennale, 2010; No Man’s Land, Embassy of France, Japan, 2009; When Lives Become Form, São Paulo Museum of Modern Art, Brazil, 2008; Space For Your Future, Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Japan, 2007.
