Box Gallery, Manning

At the beginning of 2017 ten permanent public exhibition boxes were installed at the new Manning Community Centre, to provide a public display space to showcase local artists, community groups or collaborations between the two.

Current Exhibition

Limited Minerals by Holly O'Meehan

On display from December 2023 to March 2024

Limited Minerals interrogates the long-term effects both native and introduced flora have on built structures, specifically referencing the unique biodiversity of the Western Australian environment and its impacts on relatively new structures that have been built using the very same minerals and materials the local flora rely on to survive.

Integrated on top of local site photography are shallow sculptural ceramic elements responding to these mundane built sites as native and introduced flora creeping through the cracks and reclaiming the spaces. These sculptural objects are inspired by the local native flora such as various Acacias and Boronias, Hakea, Kangaroo Paw and Samphire, as well as recognisable weeds.
