Gallery 1
Contra
Biljana Jancic

‘Contra’ began as a deconstructive response to the rectangular, fluro lighting rig of the gallery space. The work consists of a continuous line made of sewage piping that contorts around the parameters of the imaginary volume under the rig. In contrast to the fluro tubes which emit light, the pipe structure is painted gold to reflect the light from the fluros. The contradiction of the gold painted pipe conflates associations of the visceral and abject with the transcendental. This exploration is informed by a number of historic references including the 1917 ‘God’ sculpture of Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, gold monochromes of Yves Klein, the excess of Baroque cathedral interiors and theatrical shamanism of Joseph Beuys.


Gallery 2
360 Radial Arc
James Nguyen

This exhibition forms part of an evolving project called“The Man With The Movie Camera”, and is inadvertently inspired by Dziga Vertovsʼ silent film of the same title. By questioning the complicity of documentation in provoking and politicising the gestures of performance, this series explores the handling and performative potential of the camera. To date, the works are a combination of books/ledgers and video-installations that aim to defer the “live-performance”.


Gallery 3
Sculptures: 4


Sculptures: 4 continues a series of artistic explorations that are concerned with the vitality of sound, its physical presence, the power it has to affect other objects and our expectations surrounding of it. Sculptures: 4 re-purposes the speaker from a sonic transmission device to a sculptural, visual object by using sound waves to generate visual movement and simultaneously power LED lights. Sculptures: 4 seeks to re-examine our relationship to the audible and re-think sound as a physical and conceptual property as well as an audible one. The work subverts the materials in order to reveal and make sensory the transition of energy, capturing a moment of potentiality that shows an instantaneous conversion between media.


Gallery 4
Still Life with Punches
Melissa Deerson

According to artist George Gessert,“Domesticated ornamental plants, pets, sporting animals and consciousness-altering drug plants constitute a vast unacknowledged genetic folk art, or primitive genetic art, that has a history stretching back thousands of years.”

With this in mind, Melissa Deerson takes a humorous look at flowers and their multifaceted role as art objects, symbols of human emotions, tradable commodities, plants operating within a wider ecosystem, and living individuals.
Still Life with Punches consists of two videos – a projection of various floral arrangements being punched by a disembodied fist (the artist's), an accurately captioned collection of found Youtube clips in which people make snapdragon flowers ‘talk’, and a book of notes and images which expand on the thinking behind the work. Taking the still-life genre as a starting point, the installation creates a clumsy, slightly disturbing performance of human intervention into, and interaction with, the ‘natural’ realm, and tries to get a little closer to questions such as: When does nature become art? Do human interventions into non-human domains only go one way? And how do we engage in an honest way with the living things we have contact with?


About the artists:

Biljana Jancic

Biljana Jancic is a Sydney artist whose work consists mainly of spatial interventions. Over the past ten years she has exhibited work in a range of spaces in Sydney and further afield. Recent solo shows from 2013 were ‘Opposed’, Lock Up Cultural Centre, Newcastle and ‘Trap’ at Institute of Contemporary Art Newtown (ICAN). In 2013 she also exhibited work in a number of group exhibitions including Black Square: 100 Years, Australian Experimental Art Foundation, Adelaide, Look This Way, UTS Gallery, University of Technology Sydney and Full Court Press, (Curated by Sebastian Goldspink) Artereal Gallery, Sydney. In 2014 her work was exhibited in the St. Jerome's Laneway Festival, Sydney and Conquest of Space (Curated by Andrew Frost) COFA Galleries. Jancic studied at the Sydney College of the Arts where she completed a PhD in 2012.


James Nguyen

James Nguyen works with performance and video in addition to a range of other site-specific, and time-based practices. Focusing on the relationships between the body and the object, his work is often playful and self-deprecating. Completing undergraduate studies at NAS, his current research at SCA is focused on visual absences, and performance as cinematography.




Té is the interdisciplinary arts project of Kynan Tan (Perth) and Andrew Brooks (Sydney). Working with sound as a departure point, the group is interested in approaching sound as a conceptual, visible and physical medium. They create works in the format of performances, installations, kinetic sculptures, recordings and thought experiments, and these works question the ephemerality and physicality of sound, listening experience, improvisation, and audience/performer relationship. They have performed as part of the TURA Totally Huge New Music Festival, the NOW now Festival of Arts, toured Europe and Japan and undertaken residencies at Performance Space (Sydney) and the Centre for Contemporary Arts (Perth).
