Alterations, Disturbances & Rips

Opening night Thursday 15 December, 6-9pm
Exhibition continues to Sunday 18 December, daily from 12-4pm


“Collage” originally a French word, derived from the word coller, meaning “to paste” is an art form very much reflective of our omnipresent consumer culture and a compelling medium in the contemporary art practice that seeks to interrogate it.

The cut-up aesthetic, the chopping up of found imagery and the reshuffling of the fragments, invests new meaning in familiar imagery. Themes of anarchy, instability and heterogeneity emerge as everyday images are deconstructed and reassembled.

Sampling and tapping into the ubiquitous scraps of modern life the exhibition suggests an investigation around the Collage medium and the various techniques employed by the 5 participating artists.

With each artist engaging with the medium from a different perspective the resulting assemblage of artworks will present as a complex tapestry of investigations – joined in the gallery space to become an extensive and multifaceted collage in itself.

Featuring artists KAREEM RIZK, MAURO PALMIERI, JOEL LAMBETH, DANILO BRANDAO and HILARY FAYE.
