Sentiment is a co-curated exhibition that explores notions of sentimentality that exists in the realms of imagination and personal experience.
Artists were invited to shape and express their thoughts on the things that create emotional connection and disconnection. Using a variety of media, the works move between light and dark, fact and fiction, interest and disengagement.
Concerned with ideas of creative and cultural exchange, Aaron Fell-Fracasso of The Egg & Dart (NSW), and Patrick Sutczak of Sawtooth ARI (Tas) have produced a contemplative exhibition that crosses cultures to inspire thoughts of presence and departure, memory and experience, change and loss, love and longing.
Curators: Patrick Sutczak and Aaron Fell-Fracasso
Presented by Sawtooth ARI and The Egg & Dart in association with Ten Days on the Island

@SAWTOOTHERS aims to create a dialogue about contemporary art through the collaborative e-exhibition featuring artists from around the world. The project invites artists from across the world to post about their practice and in doing so, create a conversation about how exhibitions can be engaged with, or presented through new media and technology. The online project relies heavily on research of artists, while aiming to create a cohesive representation of contemporary art through mixed media, aesthetic and subject content.

The project was established in October 2014 and is ongoing.
Each fortnight a guest artist/curator is invited to take over @sawtoothers to create a visual dialogue of their practice and contemporary art.
