Castles of Illusion

Castles of Illusion

Saturday 3 December - Saturday 17 December 2011

12:00pm - 6:00pm

Venue: Intermedia Gallery, CCA

An exhibition of new work by Laurence Figgis, Brin Frost and current MFA student Zoe Williams. The artists have in-common an interest in the creation of internalised worlds, drawing on aspects of the surreal, the uncanny, the precious and the abject, and mobilising a diverse range of mediums to explore these themes including ornamental sculpture, collage and film. The objects and two-dimensional works on show in this exhibition appear on first glance to be drawn from a rich concoction of soap-opera, luxury commodity and primal myth. However on closer inspection, these isolated signifiers, divorced from their original context, often reveal darker, more disturbing undertones.
