Commune.1

Founded in 2011, Commune.1’s main gallery is dedicated to large-scale installation and sculpture. It is one of the few spaces in the country that offers a platform for artists interested in creating immersive environments with gallery-spanning art. By doing this it aims to expose new and established audiences to art ‘experiences’ rather than the more traditional modes associated with commercial art galleries.

Moe’s monumental cement and steel sculptures situate the viewer in a preternatural relationship to her subjects due to scale and by shifting the conventional axis of the form. In this way her work provokes ontological and phenomenological questions about human relationships to nature, to the spaces we occupy and the markers/monuments/memorials we leave behind. Moe’s central installation, featuring two sizable recumbent birds, recalls the mythology of the sunbird and the ancient form of the sarcophagus thus resonating with contrasting motifs found in nature such as birth and death, light and dark, the solid and the ephemeral.
