The Impossibility of Possibility – Bus Projects, Melbourne.

‘The Impossibility of Possibility’
Sean Barrett, Sarah Byrne, Dara Gill, Tim Woodward
Curated by Sarah Werkmeister
Opening Tuesday 26 June 6-8pm
5 – 14 July 2012

Through mediums of video, performance and sculpture, four artists explore the concept of contemporary absurdity. Dara Gill walks away from counterparts holding up a plastic bowl, leaving them wondering where to go next. Tim Woodward, works between sound and sculpture to highlight absurd situations, Sean Barrett pashes himself and Sarah Byrne remixes pop culture to the point where each repeated movement becomes a signal of inane angst. ‘The Impossibility of Possibility’ finds the humourous approach in living the impossible.

Opening night Friday 20 April 6-8pm 

In ‘We need you, you need us’ five artists from across Australia respond to the idea of “The Experience Economy” – presenting sculptural, performative and interactive works which question the role of the artist in a capitalist economic framework and explore the precarities of artistic practice. An artist fee will be sealed inside the walls of the gallery, artworks will be freely distributed, and audiences can gamble for an insight into economic success, or a year-long relationship. Questioning the sensibility of the artist as intellectually or physically superior, both the role of the artist and artwork are deconstructed by processes of imitation and reproduction in five new works.

Exhibition continues until May 19
