Adelaide-based glass artist Drew Spangenberg creates stand-alone pieces with practical possibilities. In Departure to Graceland he is inspired by the colours and forms of the Italian design and architecture collective known as The Memphis Group, founded by Ettore Sottsass in 1981. As a musician, Spangenberg feels a connection between playing music and the rhythm and coordination required in the glass blowing process. He arranges glass vessels into complementary compositions as he would a piece of music. In this exhibition he juxtaposes softer transparent works with the radical, funny and outrageous style of Memphis.

Presented as part of the 2022 SALA Festival.
