Description

'Catacoustics' was an exhibition of sculptural assemblages and photographs that continues my exploration of self-portraiture and the sculptural object. The exhibition was presented in three versions 2015-2016. ‘Catacoustics I’ was incldued in the 2015 MetroArts curated exhibition program (curator: Amy-Clare McCarthy), ‘Catacoustics II’ was held at BUS Projects, Melbourne (curators: Channon Goodwin and Madé Spencer-Castle) and Catacoustics III was held at the the QUT Art Museum (curator: Vanessa Van Ooyen).

The work specifically extends the formal vocabulary of my studio practice to incorporate a replica casting of the Ian Fairweather memorial rock at Bribie Island, Queensland. The resulting casts are combined with a series of heptagonal forms derived from the memorial plinth and other sundry components taken from previous exhibitions. The final arrangement of this diverse field of elements is determined in part by their formal properties (e.g. their capacity to nest, prop, balance, support each other) frequently also taking the horizontal/vertical and the orientation of surrounding walls as formal cues. In so doing, the body of work acts as a manifestation of object-agency. Within this studio methodology, practice is theorised as a site for the interplay of non-human agents. The resulting exhibition thus acts a meditation on the ontology of art practice – a radically expanded self-portrait - conceived as a 'topology', a fluid network of relationships forged largely by objects.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
