irrational behaviour

Irrational Behaviour is a collaborative project with Susan Hawkins, originally exhibited at Sutton ProjectsMelbourne 16th February – 10th March 2018.

For their two-person exhibition at Sutton Projects Clare Rae and Susan Hawkins have explored ideas of resilience and repetition, creating works using a call and response methodology to explore parallels and the potential for conceptual crossover within their practices. Both artists engage in themes of domesticity through the use of material objects in spatial contexts. Often employing an absurdist approach to art-making, the resulting works in this exhibition are gently humorous and simultaneously uncomfortable, traversing the sometimes awkward and complex territory between bodies and materials.
