THE FINEST OF DOMESTIC ANIMALS
3 – 20 August 2016
Opening Night | Thursday 4 August 6 - 8pm
Framed by an interest in the way in which consumption practices articulate a disappointing demand for an ideality that is absent. The Finest of Domestic Animals is an ongoing investigation into desire, consumerist culture and the subliminal messages that operate between the object and consumer.
Tapping into the visual systems of window displays and advertisements, as primary sites where desire is constructed and instructed, to explore the experience of material and immaterial, real and ideal and the fetishtic treatment of objects.
