FORM presents newly-commissioned work by internationally celebrated Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde, in his first Australian solo exhibition, BUILDED REMNANTS, the title of which is an anagram of Smilde’s own name.

Smilde is internationally recognised for his iconic Nimbus photographs that document the creation of clouds inside evocative architectural spaces, a series that is represented in the Saatchi and Smithsonian collections, among many others. 

As part of his residency in 2016, Smilde worked with local photographer Bewley Shaylor to create a new series of Nimbus cloud images. This included his first outdoor Nimbus works, created in Karijini National Park and the red dirt landscape outside of Roebourne.

Smilde also travelled to the South West to create an experimental rainbow work at the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse on Australia’s most south-westerly point, a site first mapped by the Dutch several centuries ago.
