Jess Leitmanis - Excavations of the Deep @ Lone Goat Gallery | Byron Bay | New South Wales | Australia

A series of woven sculptures created from marine debris rope, that explore the relationship between mind and matter.

To what degree does our internal world in uence our external world? To what degree does our environment in uence our thoughts?

A contemporary archaeological dig that invites the viewer to question current modes of thinking, being, feeling, cultivating, creating, consuming, and discarding… This excavation looks for clues in the disconnect between that which is, and that which is assumed.

The seen and the unseen; the surface and the submerged; the conscious and the sub-conscious… Let’s dive in!
