EXHIBITIONS AND NEWS
COOL CHANGE CONTEMPORARY, BON MARCHE ARCADE, BARRACK STREET, PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA
1 - 23 October 2021
Shadow is used as a metaphor for invisible societal, psychological and environmental forces by giving them an impermanent material expression through abstraction, incorporating movement of lighting to create dynamic shadow play on the ceiling and walls in an immersive sculptural installation. I also celebrate my cultural heritage by creating a series of laser cut drawings in colours synonymous with Indian culture.
This work was developed during my residency at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts.

PICA RESIDENCY 2021
Gelmi is using her residency at PICA to build on the metaphor of the shadow as a hidden influential force, drawing attention to them by concentrating on the absence of the material removed. Her aim is to give an impermanent material expression to the invisible societal and environmental forces through abstraction by incorporating movement of lighting to create dynamic shadow play on the ceiling and walls in an immersive sculptural installation. She will also examine the impact of the work’s grounding to the heritage structure of PICA itself, a symbol of colonisation and the cultural compromises often felt by migrants to a new land.
