Urban Materiality group exhibit taking place at the Brunswick Street Gallery from August 21 – 3 September 2015. Opening is 6-9pm on the Friday 21st August. I’ll be exhibiting a new sound installation work ‘Reflections of’ .
We are a generation of fear acclimatized to comfort. We have a short attention span. We are afraid to be disconnected, to be alone. We are bored. We are afraid of being overly connected and transparent. We fear solitude and the unknown. Fear of silence. Fear of noise. We have muted the environment. We have become unnatural and over-reliant. We have forgotten what it means to be free.
Reflections of is the representation of our everyday. What we choose to see, hear, taste and touch. It seeks to bring awareness and probe the façade of our daily lives. Are we truly aware of our what we want or are we just creatures of habit?
Three Acts, a series of three older works, will be exhibiting in gallery 6 of 69 Smith Street Gallery from 29 July to 16 August 2015. Opening is Saturday 1st August from 4-6pm. Come on down and say hi, drinks on me.
