(Untitled) Expand/Contract

Judith Abell, Tristan Stowards, Anthony Johnson, Astra Howard

CURATOR: PAULA SILVA // This off-site exhibition/event will be presented/preformed across 4 weeks, by four artists, each artist in one week: Judith Abell, Tristan Stowards, Anthony Johnson and Astra Howard. The space is a common shop space located in a high foot traffic area of Hobart CBD - Cat & Fiddle shopping centre. The four artists have different practices, ranging from object-based art to performative and relational art. These varied practices will transform a common shop space into four different spaces/situations in one month. During this period the space will be deprived of any characteristic that can legitimize the presentation/performance as art.

About Photography II

PATRICIA TODARELLO, EMIDIO PUGLIELLI, SALVATORE PANATTERI, DAVID MARTIN, GOTTFRIED JÄGER

A photograph is a chair. Jean Paul Sartre told me so. Rene Magritte made a painting of it, turned it into a pipe, and then said it wasn’t really a pipe at all. Roland Barthes later found that the chair was indeed a photograph. It turned out to be a photograph of his mother - but not one that he recognised. Roland decided not to show it to us because we wouldn’t have recognised it either – we probably would have concluded that it was really a chair after all.
