Rosina Possingham and Brianna Speight are Adelaide-based artists working primarily with photomedia. Their collaborative practice started with a three-month Artist-in-Residence program at Sauerbier House Culture Exchange, Port Noarlunga SA. Here they developed their first project ZINC, building and exchanging visual language with graphic elements, high energy stylised installations and open community engaged work ethic, this is the first project of more to come. ZINC was exhibited with Sauerbier House Culture Exchange March to June, featured in ArtGuide Australia’s Top 5 exhibitions to see, and was exhibited at PraxisArtspace Gallery in October 2020. Below (the surface) from the ZINC series is selected as a finalist in the inaugural Lake Macquarie Museum Lake Art Prize.

We’re thrilled to be included in an exhibition program that allows us to share our work with new audiences. We hope the warmth of the works, dripping in glaring sunlight and cool water drops, can provide something of value to those passing through the halls of the Lyell McEwin.
