A WORLD APART, ARC ONE Gallery, 29 JANUARY - 1 MARCH 2014
Curated by Annabel Holt and Anabelle Lacroix
Julie Rrap, Anne Zahalka, Peter Daverington, Rose Farrell/George Parkin, Peter Callas & Pat Brassington.
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.
