Artist talks on the current exhibition at Blindside.
Saturday 22 March 2.30pm
A highly unadvisable undertaking, is a handmade parachute apparatus built by filling in the gaps and constructing through a process of guesswork and sheer intuition. A garage built stand-in that may do the job but could kill the user in the same stroke.
EVIDENCE | TODD JOHNSON
This multi-media installation aestheticizes moments of extremity, intensity, and disorder that might emerge from life on the periphery. Defaced signage, fractured objects and enigmatic remnants of public/private disasters scattered from the untimely and terrorizing underworld of encounters. ‘Evidence’ is a psychologically charged site; a scene showing the aftermath of a poetic and rebellious act inferred through a sequence gestural tears and materialist interventions.
Date: March 22nd, 2:30pm
Venue: BLINDSIDE Gallery, Level 7, Room 14, Nicholas Building, 37 Swanston Street, Melbourne
Both exhibitions are on from the 12th – 29th March, 2014.
