Melting Point is a body of work by GRO Artist Member Tania Houtzager that investigates the fragility of memory and its relationship to the fleeting health of the environment.

Inspired by a trip to Antarctica in December of 2016, Houtzager uses a process-based practice involving plaster and photo transfers to create collages, sculptures and paintings that capture complex truths of a vast and untouched, but nevertheless dissolving, landscape. As memories inevitably fade and ice melts unrelentingly, there is a sense of urgency in this body of work to make visible a moment in time and space.

The result is an exhibition that presents the intimately personal and broader sociological aspects of the experience as fundamentally connected.
