The survey exhibition will include work from a wide variety of media, and particularly draw on her experimental textile works. The exhibition explores key themes that Ormella has consistently developed in her work: social and environmental activism; human and animal relationships; nationalism and national identity.

These recurrent interests are brought together by a consistent engagement with the artist’s voice. Rather than being the site of authority, Ormella’s voice simultaneously expresses an aspiration for connection, while remaining uncertain about whether the communication will work.

A NETS Victoria and Shepparton Art Museum touring exhibition, curated by Rebecca Coates and Anna Briers.
