Unexpected Composition responds to spontaneity and serendipity. Deliberately restricted to a 10 minute installation, the work involves objects sourced directly from the gallery courtyard, referencing the history of the space in a slap-dash, tongue-in-cheek approach.
As a spontaneous work, Unexpected Composition questions the creative process – can an artwork be any good if made at such short notice? Was there thought put into the work, or is this all post-justification, fuelled by our need for things to mean something? In all, the work becomes a reflection on the possibilities provided by interpretation and judgement.
