'A WORLD APART: The pliability of history, the body and the environment are central to ARC ONE'S first group show of the year.  Featuring works held in major collections or featured in major institutional shows - courtesy of gallery artists Julie Rrap, Pat Brassington, Anne Zahalka, Peter Callas, Peter Daverington, Rose Farrell and George Parkin - A WORLD APART offsets the performative with the visceral, the landscape with the surreal.  Daverington's Uncle Bob is a single work in three parts and three mediums. We're presented with a surrealist phizog painted in the artist's devastatingly meticulous manner, neighboured by an animated video work featuring the same character and a photographic print made from a video still.  Callas' chromogenic print, Japanese Uncle Sam, deals in a kind of cultural and historical mutation that invokes the cultural schema under-pinning an occupied post-war Japan.'

A WORLD APART is a group exhibition selected from the diverse ranks of ARC ONE’s artists, presenting key works across various media.

A WORLD APART plays at dissecting and re-representing reality, conceptually and aesthetically. Through this re-construction, attention is called to that which displaces our ingrained perceptions; the boundaries shift, a duality emerges, exploring the con­stant challenge between seeing and understanding.

Comprised of highly significant pieces, the works in A WORLD APART are all either included in large collections or featured in institutional exhibitions in Australia or internationally. For example, Farrell and Parkin’s Elastic Electromagnetic Waves (2010) is in the collection of The National Gallery of Aus­tralia (NGA), Canberra and their Unforseen Circumstances, Act Two (2004/05) is in the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), Sydney, together with Julie Rrap’s Camouflage #4 (Eiko) (2000). One of Peter Callas’ video works from the Anti-Terrain series has been shown at the Museum of Art (MOMA), New York and Anne Zahalka’s The Cleaner (1986) is in the collection of the Monash Gallery of Art (MGA). Pat Brassington’s work The Wedding Guest is currently on show at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), in the collections of Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA), Art Gal­lery of South Australia and the Horsham Regional Art Gallery.
