GALLERY 1  

29 July - 15 Aug 2015 | WANDERING ARCHIVE | JESSICA HOOD | KARLA MARCHESI | CLARE RAE | MELANIE JAYNE TAYLOR

Wandering Archive brings together work by four artists. Across installation, painting and photography, the works presented here engage with the concept of the archive in personal, and often playful, ways. Eschewing austerity and authority, these artists have produced idiosyncratic archives, or interactions with institutional archives, that emphasise the archive as a process, defined by transience, malleability and re-interpretation. Curators Simone hine & Kyle Weise.

GALLERY 2

29 July - 15 Aug 2015 | TRUE LIES AND SUPERFICTIONS: MAKING SUPERFICTIONS REAL | PETER HILL

Superfictions exist in the gap between installation art and literary fiction. Peter Hill’s first Superfiction was the Museum of Contemporary Ideas (1989 – ongoing), supposedly the world’s biggest new museum on Park Avenue, New York. In time, it went through a détournement and emerged as The Art Fair Murders (1994 – ongoing) a mix of installation art, novel, and website. The next chapter of the Superfiction narrative at BLINDSIDE in Melbourne Making Superfictions Real, asks 'Can real projects come into existence through Superfiction strategies, veering from “Money no object” to “Zero budget”?' Peter Hill will be in the gallery every day at noon to discuss these ideas.

PLAY | WILLIAM MACKRELL

Deux Chevaux is the attempt of two horses to pull a two horsepower Citroen 2CV. The performance considers the delicate juncture between natural and mechanical languages of power, precariously joined together in an unpredictable experiment likened to a modern day Frankenstein. William Mackrell (GBR), Deux Chevaux 2011, (6.48 minutes)
