Permanence is an exhibition by Dan Elborne comprised of objects constructed primarily from the bi-product of another work. Deathgate, created over a number of years and recently presented in Toowoomba, is made up of 1.3 million individual pieces formed into an installation that memorialises those who entered Auschwitz | Birkenau: those lost and those who survived. The objects in Permanence are made from particles of fired clay that were sourced from locations of influence and significance to the artist in Australia and beyond. These clay particles, fragments, and damaged shards were collected from the kiln firings for the 1.3 million Deathgate pieces. In Permanence these ‘leftovers’ find their purpose as heavy, contained sculptural columns that continue the homage embodied in the earlier work through their formal presentation. Honouring the intention of Deathgate, these enduring objects combine to claim what remains.

Join us for an Opening and Artist Talk of the exhibition on Sunday 7 July starting at 1.30pm.
This is a free event and all are welcome. RSVP to the Gallery by noon Wednesday 3 July 2019.
