'Caught up in things'
Isabella Darcy is an emerging cross media artist and recent graduate from Monash University, Bachelor of Fine Art.

She believes materials and objects, are symbolic to how we navigate our lives. Isabella has exhibited in a number of group shows and performances locally with an upcoming solo show at Sawtooth ARI and a solo sound performance at West Space as part of the ‘Evening of Musik’ curated by John Nixon.

Hannah Wu is a sound artist from New Zealand currently based in Melbourne, whose practice considers the aural delineation of natural, transient and constructed landscapes, while imbuing “mundane” objects with contextual value through kinetic interactions during performance. In experimenting with digital sound, found objects, field recordings and analogue electronics, Wu’s compositions are temporal, ambient meditations concerning the nature of objecthood as metonymic to the environment, while espousing an interest in the malleability of microtonal music and materials. Her attempts to discern the causal relationships between object, sound and location result in site-specific, cumulative, melodic soundscapes.
Eva Quinn-Walters graduated from RMIT University, Melbourne in 2016 with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. Her practice highlights the plural and unfixed nature of our environment and our reality. Through documentation of action-based events, sites and moments, she create installations using footage and as material. Eva has exhibited in a number of group shows at galleries in Melbourne, such as Seventh Gallery, West Space and Testing Grounds.
Kiiroitori is a small yellow bird resembling a chick, and seems to be the only character of the three who has any ‘right’ to reside in Kaoru’s apartment. Kiiroitori was a pet bird residing in cage before the appearance of these two bears, but after Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma set themselves up in her small apartment, Kiiroitori was liberated from his cage
(excerpt from 'Cute But Relaxed: Ten Years of Rilakkuma in Precarious Japan', Carolyn Shannon Stevens, 2014)
