In-House is the University of South Australia’s fourth biennial research exhibition hosted by the JamFactory and supported through the well-established partnership between the two important South Australian institutions. Curated by Gabriella Bisetto and Andrew Welch, this exhibition features responses by artists and designers to the function, history and meaning of chandelier as a signifier of luxury and wealth, as well as the object’s significance in a contemporary context.

Academic staff from the Contemporary Art programs at UniSA were invited to examine the agency of the chandelier in the twenty-first century. In an era where makers and their audience are critically aware of how the production and consumption of things contribute to global warming, how might the ostensibly obsolete chandelier contribute to a discussion of sustainable/ecological balance, pleasure, illumination, and craftsmanship?

Featuring Stephen Atkinson, Chris Boha, Louise Bird, Julie Collins, Melanie Cooper, Ron Corso, Matt Huppatz, Mark Kimber, Michael Kutschbach, Joanna Majchrowska, Peter Schumacher, Peter Walker and Hanah Williams.

In-House is open daily at JamFactory’s Gallery One from February 26 to April 26 2021. Drop in to 19 Morphett St, Adelaide, from 10am until 5pm to see it in person.
