The Poetics of Motion is an exhibition produced by Bella La Spina which showcases the processes and outcomes of creating an etched video. 

Considered the ‘mouth’ of the Northern Beaches, the Spit Bridge has been reimagined in this exhibition by Bella La Spina which utilises the traditional processes of copper etching to create a unique stop-motion video.

What has resulted is an interactive exhibition suitable for all ages. This work was made possible by the generosity of the Northern Beaches Council Art and Creativity Grant program.

About the artist

Bella La Spina is a contemporary printmaker primarily working with found and archival imagery, her practice expands across the mediums of printmaking, photomedia and sculpture to create assemblages that explore themes of memory, history, erasure and haunting. Bella’s work is predominantly process driven, and utilises the extractive processes of analogue photography and printmaking to strip back and reveal what narratives may be held below the official archive exterior.
