Australian artist Natasha Frisch celebrates the minute, forgotten and invisible objects of domestic life – a wooden stool worn with age, a weed growing between the cracks of a brick wall, a ladder leaning insolently in a corner. The artist meticulously replicates these ordinary objects as paper sculptures, transforming the mundane into artworks of fragile beauty. She then reinserts the mimicry back into the everyday, drawing our attention to a world that is often hidden in plain sight. Exploring ideas of perception, value, beauty and space, Frisch’s wondrous works invite us to pause and reconsider our world anew.
