2000-11-08 until 2000-11-25
Monash University Gallery
ArtArt is a survey exhibition of works by Monash University students. The exhibits are by third year students,
Honours, Masters and Doctoral candidates from Monash's Faculty of Art and Design. The exhibition
represents many of the art and design disciplines taught within the Faculty, including: painting, drawing,
sculpture, printmaking, tapestry, photography, glass, ceramics, and video.
The artists involved are: Joe Angwin, Vita Beder, Cameron Bishop, Pia Blair, Daniel Cordner, Marcus Dillon,
Nicole Durling, David Fitzsimmons, Osian Grant, Jodie Goldring, Brad Haylock, Tyra Hutchens, Zaio Biao
Kuang, Miranda Legge, Caroline Lewens, Joe Machin, Elaine Miles, Lynn Miller Coleman, Ronnie Neal, Aloma
Triester, Jesse Walsh.
The works were chosen through a process in which each artist submitted three slides, a CV, and a statement
about how and why the work was created.
David Fitzsimmons' work consists of two domestic washing machines that oscillate and vibrate, surprising us
with the apparently chaotic movement of such objects that are unexpected within the confines of a gallery.
Zai Biao Kuang's paintings of bathrooms and Emma Brook's plaster casts from takeaway food and icecream
containers each explore the everyday and familiar in ways that ask the viewer to reconsider that which we take
Brad Haylock's documentary short film, Safe New World, uncovers the fanatical behaviour that takes place in
every aisle of the supermarket - a place which he notes, is anything but harmless. The intense colours of
Marcus Dillon's glass vases burst forth with raw energy that fully express the sensuous and seemingly magical
properties of the medium.
