19 October – 5 November
Opens 19 October 6pm–8pm
Cameron Bishop and Simon Reis
In the middle of a strange and amorphous shape comes clarity. A gallery allows for the emergence of certain objects and phrases; itself becoming an object within the cultural framework it sits. The gallery, in-turn, begets certain phrases that legitimize and perpetuate it affecting the meaning of whatever is exhibited inside of it. Bishop and Reis replicate a gallery inside a gallery so that the gallery and the viewer become the objects of display.
Generally, Bishop and Reis look to unseat the viewer from their stable foundations, architecturally, psychologically and culturally, arguing that the regime of signs that support notions of who-we-are can be displaced by destabilising the spaces we have come to place so much faith in, including the art gallery.
