Malleable Details is a collaborative project between Jordan Mitchell-Fletcher and James Murnane, bringing together their respective sculpture and painting practices by means of their shared interest in process driven artmaking. Responding to the unique material particularities of the Schoolhouse Studios gallery space, as well as those within each others practice, they undertake an engagement with heaviness and lightness, temporality and permanence, playfulness and consideration, the solidly structured and the tenuously tethered, and what something was, is, and could be.
Jordan Mitchell-Fletcher lives and works in Melbourne and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) in 2015 from Monash University. She has since exhibited in various solo and group shows both locally and internationally. In 2018 she was an artist in residence at AIRY in Yamanashi, Japan.
James Murnane is a visual artist from Melbourne, where he currently lives and works, and where he completed his Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) at RMIT University in 2006. In addition to having exhibited regularly in Australia, he has also undertaken self-directed site-specific installations on the ruins of Korskirken, a former 13th century church in Oslo, Norway (2016), and in the Baroque choir of Saint-Bruno les Chartreux, Lyon, France (2017). Murnane has undertaken residencies at St Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne, Australia (2013), and La Fragua, Belalcázar, Spain (2015).
