Emma Borland’s Neurotypical

By October 1, 2014 November 20th, 2014 News

Art is often at the forefront of innovation, so we often attend exhibitions to explore art in greater depth. This evening we attended the opening of Neurotypical by glass artist Emma Borland. Emma previously exhibited at Maroondah Federation Estate, where I had the pleasure of opening her exhibition when I was Mayor in 2010.

In Neurotyical, Emma examines inclusion and exclusion, working with glass to capture figures that are caught between illusion and reality. Each piece casts a striking silhouette, depicting humanity and how difference is portrayed in society.

Neurotypical is on exhibition at the MADA Gallery (Monash University Caulfield, Building G 900 Dandenong Road Caulfield East) until the 25th of October.
