The Cipher’s Interval
Lyn Plummer’s installations engage sound and digital imagery and wall and floor forms in a wide range of materials. She investigates the diverse ways that significant meanings can be attached to space, forms, marks, images, sounds and silences, and how connotations of these symbols shift with each exhibition space, the variations of the elements and of the nature of the intervals between them.

Lecture – ‘Bliss, Blasphemy and Belief: Exploring Spirituality in Contemporary Australian Art’
Rev Dr Rod Pattenden
Date: Friday 15 October, 12pm-1pm
Venue: Glenn College Theatre, La Trobe University
LUMA presents a lecture by Rev Dr Rod Pattenden, Chair of the Blake Prize for Religious Art, on the role of spirituality in contemporary Australian art, and the history of the Blake Prize.
A continuing preoccupation for Lyn Plummer, spanning years of artistic practice, has been the role of the spiritual in art. As she stated in an interview with writer Abba Voigt, “it seems to me that there is a very close connection between art and spirituality and, eventually, structured religions. I remember that my earliest thoughts on the essential role of art in expressing the spirituality of the community lay in its ability to give form to feeling and shape ideals. I was convinced then that art and spirituality were inexorably linked.”
These are free events, but bookings are required to ensure availability of seating and catering.
