Cluster Pop, Amanda Davies. Presented at AIRspace Projects, Sydney. 
Opening: 28 September, 2018

Cluster Pop comprises two performative self-portrait animations by Amanda Davies. Davies is fascinated by the oscillation between seeing and sensing, articulating something of what lies within - transforming a body state experience into an image to be seen. Cluster Pop has been developed by Without Talking, for presentation at AIRspace Projects, Sydney, by invitation through Marrickville Garage's FIFO – (FLY IN FLY OUT), video program. 

Davies is best known for her figurative paintings, winning the 2017 Portia Geach Memorial Award. Cluster Pop is the first time the artist has shown moving image works in Sydney. Davies attained her BFA from the University of Tasmania in 2003. Since this time she has received numerous residencies including: an Arts Tasmania Claudio Alcorso International Residency to study in London (2017) and an Australia Council for the Arts Rome Studio Residency (2012). Recent exhibitions include: Mistake, Bett Gallery (2018), Hobart; a bruise has no tears, Contemporary Art Tasmania, Hobart (2016) curated by Pat Brassington and Kylie Johnson; Brainstorm, Dark Mofo, Hobart (2016) curated by John Vella, and Purge, Cross Art Project, Sydney (2012) curated by Craig Judd. 

Cluster Pop is part of an ongoing project between Amanda Davies, Pat Brassington and Without talking,.
