I took to doing some hovering

What to do when you are forced to listen to the needle stuck in a groove? So much time is spent waiting, hanging around in places we’d prefer to avoid, but escapism can be too much like hard work. The artists in Small Alterations have turned their attention to the banal in their immediate surroundings (objects left on top of a desk, an upturned umbrella, a hospital treatment room) to reveal the uncanny in their everyday.

Julie Burleigh is an early career ceramicist whose simple functional designs and autobiographical dioramas are sold nationally through The Guild and Mr Kitly and occasionally exhibited. As a musician she has performed with People Person, The French and Hi God People in music venues and art galleries including the National Gallery of Victoria. Burleigh began her ceramics practice in 2012 and is interested in the functional and the handmade as it relates to everyday life. Recently she has applied the simplicity of these functional forms to the making of a series of dioramas, depicting institutional spaces she has encountered and adding an edge of the fantastic.

Matthew Hopkins works with sound, painting, drawing, objects, video, and text based work. He was a finalist in the Substation Contemporary Art Prize 2104 and the Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship 2008, and was awarded both an Art Start, and a New Work Emerging Artist grant through the Australia Council for the Arts in 2010. Hopkins’ work is held in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney, Artbank, and numerous private collections.
