I have a work in a group show!

Intersections

The opening is on Friday, February 4 (from 6 – 9pm) at At The Vanishing Point. The address is 565 King St, Newtown.

The show runs from 4 – 20 February, I’d love for you to come along and check it out.

What measures are taken by curators to erect barriers between individual works so that an audience can have the opportunity to experience works on their own without the interference of other works? And what conditions need to be arranged so that works can be experienced the way the artists have originally intended?

What happens to the experience of a work when we let our guard down, and forget about a particular barrier or requirement? For example, say we install a sound work in a gallery on speakers instead of headphones, and despite our best efforts, we can hear the sound throughout the whole show. Every time someone looks at a painting, they are also listening to the sound work. How does this affect the way we respond to both works? The experience of more than one work at the same time can be defined as an “intersection”.

Intersections, curated by Adrian Clement, involves firstly for the curator to install individual works, creating many different points and levels of “intersections” in the process. Subsequently, site-specific artists are invited to install works to respond to and “intersect” the way in which the show has been installed as well as the curator’s vision.

The premise of the exhibition is a hypothesis. The installation process is an experiment. And the result is an unknown.”
