Brisbane’s Sandra Selig made her name with her sublime site-specific installations, where curving planes are suggested through the regular disposition of threads strung through the gallery space between architectural points, suggesting weightless ephemeral geometric forms. One is permanently installed in the new Brisbane Magistrates Court. Selig’s work has now branched out in a number of directions. However consistent features are the use and investigation of modest everyday materials—including string, straws, paper, polystyrene balls, flyscreen mesh, and cobwebs; an interest in mathematics, geometry, patterning, and gestalt effects; and a fascination with the insubstantial qualities of atmosphere, light, and sound.
