Kate T Deacock : Strange Fruit

Untitled Composition 
Mixed media on canvas, 30 x 50 cm (variable) on glass shelf

Opening on Wednesday 25 July, 2012
Exhibition dates Thursday 26 July - Saturday 4 August
                             1 – 6pm

at Factory 49Office Project Space
49 Shepherd Street 
Marrickville 2204

Kate T Deacock's works are simple compositions that emerge from visual, visceral & tactile contemplations on space, texture and material. Found objects, materials, household items are often utilized and more occasionally digital and electronic media. Process driven, the work tends to be mutable and changing - often reworked, discarded, found again, destroyed and recreated anew.

Through this process, Deacock comes to points of experiencing and choosing to pursue the discomforting psychological spaces in between certainty and uncertainty, knowing and not knowing, continuity and discontinuity, presence and absence, permanence and impermanence etc.  

The aim is for the work to take on an ambiguous nature in that perhaps it is hard to know whether it is 'finished' or 'unfinished'. Are these works, objects complete....or even deliberate...?  The invitation is for the viewer to experience some sense of ambiguity and uncertainty about the work. Also for it to be nevertheless engaging enough to stimulate the imagination or senses to wonder about its possible history or potential future.

Gail Kenning & Sue Pedley: Moving

Being in a place that is unfamiliar often causes a heightened sense of looking and being. How do we come to understand an unfamiliar place and reconcile often simultaneously contrasting viewpoints? In an attempt to understand an unfamiliar place we bring together information gathered from books, films, articles, conversations, with our experiences of ‘being there’, interacting with people and place, moving through spaces and experiencing a culture.

Gail Kenning and Sue Pedley present a series of photocollages, animations and monoprints developed from a project carried out during a residency at the Redgate Studio in Beijing, December 2011. The project examined how individuals come to understand or perceive spaces and places that are unfamiliar and culturally, historically and socially different to their own experiences. The starting points for the work are the shared experience and documentation of two very different journeys in Beijing.
Presented by Peloton at Sydney College of the Arts, Balmain Rd, Rozelle, NSW, Australia.
Exhibition runs from 1st March - 30th March, opening reception 6-8pm 9th March
