The show INTERPLAY is assembling five Australian and International artists who interpret sculpture in a very playful way. Their works are either variable on the wall or they move in space like a mobile. All of them refer to organic shapes, colour, motion and emotion. Installed together in one exhibition the artworks start a three dimensional conversation with each other and mutually influence the way the beholder perceives them.

Christoph Dahlhausen’s artistic research revolves around the revelation and perception of light and colour as mutually conditioning and manifesting phenomena. His works evolve in a field of tension between analysis and intuition, objectivity and subjectivity, science and non-science. Julia Davis is a Sydney based artist whose work encompasses a wide range of processes and contexts. The primary focus of her research explores the perceptions of and relationships between objects, places and spaces.

Fré Ilgen’s sculptures, in which a sensitive use of colours and materials is essential, are typical for their beauty caused by the openness and complex simulations of movement. Willi Siber has introduced colour in a significant way recently. His organically shaped Wall Objects use the wall as their playground. Bill Thompson describes his pieces as "variations on the traditional square monochrome". He refers to the shapes he employs as "species" the kinds being Nodes, Rounds, Altered Flats, and Mixers to name several.
