WINDOW SHOPPING| @troyemery’s works currently exhibited across five windows of the Elizabeth Street @hermes store in Sydney
-
Troy Emery (represented by @martinbrownecontemporary, Sydney) is a Melbourne based artist whose sculptural work explores animals as decorative objects as well as the aesthetics of trophy animals and plush toys. He uses materials such as pom-poms, tassels, tinsel and yarn in pieces that intentionally confuse traditional sculpture with handicrafts.
-
The window display will run until February.

SMOKING FIGURE | ‘Smoking Figure by New Zealand-born, Melbourne-based artist Ronnie van Hout was included in this years #InstallationContemporary curated by Nina Miall. Ronnie van Hout is best known for his tragicomic figures, many of which are variations on self-portraits, characterised by a tone of existential absurdism. Making allusions to science-fiction, cinema, art history and popular culture, van Hout offers us often unsettling scenarios in which strange and lonely protagonists, frequently diminutive or oversized in scale, act out with varying degrees of humour and pathos the self consciousness and social anxieties that plague the human condition.

#REPOST | From now until the end of February 2019, @benquilty and @mirra_whale’s sculpture ‘Not a creature was stirring’ will be installed at St Paul’s Cathedral Melbourne.
-
First exhibited by @tolarno Galleries at #SydneyContemporary in September (#SwipeRight for to see!), the sculpture is made from the salvaged life-jackets of Syrian refugees.
-
The Dean of Melbourne, the Very Revd Dr Andreas Loewe, said: “the hi-vis Christmas tree at the entrance of our Cathedral is a reminder that Jesus and his family became refugees almost immediately after his birth. It is an invitation to us to open our hearts to help people displaced by war and conflict.”

MONADIC DEVICE | An endurance-based artwork of sorts, ‘Monadic Device’ by Simon Ingram (@simoningram.xyz) in collaboration with John-Paul Pochin, was a five-day painting event in which Ingram’s mental activity was recorded as a response to his own drawings and to the environment of @sydneycontemporary.
-
This project explores the contemporary finding that 98% of our minds are subconscious and far more responsible for the way the world is organised than the conscious 2% that plans and reasons.
