Jon Cattapan + Ben Aitken
The Ryan Sisters

Collaboratory is a series of exhibitions that reflect on the nature of collective endeavour. Beginning with two distinctly different collaborations, Collaboratory offers a way of understanding the relationships inherent in these working partnerships; the impact such practices have on medium and process; and the ways in which audiences are engaged.

For the first iteration, LAI presents two collaborations: one between established artist Jon Cattapan and emerging artist Ben Aitken, the other between sisters Pip and Natalie Ryan.

Jon Cattapan is an art school Professor from the University of Melbourne and Ben Aitken is a non-art school, self-trained millennial recently shortlisted for the Archibald. The nature of the inherent mentorship framework set up in this partnership is of interest, as is the way the inherent characteristics of their individual practices interact on canvas in the production of new languages.

Artists Pip Ryan and Natalie Ryan work individually and as the duo The Ryan Sisters. This familial partnership offers ways of understanding how siblings might work together and how intimate relationships might affect and infuse collaborative efforts. Using combinations of sculpture, spatial installation and intervention they play with the dualities that exist in the merging of their separate identities into a holistic entity.
