Take a reflective journey amongst the ethereal works of Jessica Loughlin with responding compositions by South Australian cellist Hilary Kleinig.

This encounter leads participants through a series of meditative states, encouraging a sense of stillness as they take in their surroundings. Held in the gallery amongst the exhibition’s quiet, contemplative works, this sound experience encourages participants to explore Jessica’s fascination with the beauty of emptiness.

Jessica Loughlin is one of Australia’s most internationally acclaimed glass artists and is renowned for her highly innovative technical approach to kiln formed glass. She creates ethereal kiln formed glass artworks that explore her fascination with the beauty of emptiness and her extensive research into light and space. She takes her artistic cues from the vast, flat landscapes and salt lakes of South Australia and is particularly drawn to the inherent quietness and stillness of the land. A studio glass artist for over twenty-five years, Loughlin has dedicated her practice to the pursuit of capturing the transient qualities of light and the quiet sense of contemplation it provokes in the viewer.

A special presentation event as part of the current exhibition Jessica Loughlin: of light currently on show at SECCA.

When: Saturday 6 April, 9.15am – 10am (45 mins)

What to expect: After an introduction from Jessica regarding her glass works, participants will be invited to walk, sit and lie down in the exhibition space in order to bask in the beautiful, recorded sound compositions created by Hilary in response to the artworks.

• Dress in warm, comfortable clothing suitable for the experience

• Yoga mats provided. Own yoga mat, blanket and cushion optional.
