Sturt Gallery | Circling Back

Sturt Gallery is unveiling its new exhibition, Circling Back on Sunday 9 June at 11am. A stunning new exhibition of sculptural work by Harriet Goodall, Circling Back uses basketry, woven installations and wall hangings in salvaged metal and natural to exprace traces in a rural landscape.

The exhibition will be opened by special guest Sophie Hansen (author of “A Basket by the Door”, food writer, blogger, farmer and Australian Rural Woman of the Year 2016).

The exhibition will run from 9 June to 28 July.

About Circling Back and Harriet Goodall:

Since childhood, Harriet Goodall found herself drawn to climb through fences and forage old house sites and farm rubbish dumps where old machinery rusts and falls apart or even cars burnt and left on roadsides.  Harriet has always collected haunting relics from these sites and been intrigued by the mysterious energy that lingers when things are abandoned.  Soon nature begins to reclaim the elements and the indelible marks of age and decay begin. What remains of us when we leave a place? How long do traces of us remain on the landscape?

Raised in rural Australia, Harriet Goodall is a full-time sculptor and basket maker exploring the intersection of traditional craft with contemporary art and design. She has taught regular basketry classes for more than ten years in Australia and internationally and has pieces in private and commercial collections.
