"Matthew Bradley The Weet-Bix Kid"
2005-08-25 until 2005-09-29
Experimental Art Foundation
Adelaide, SA, AU

The Weet-Bix Kid is a kind of diary of delinquency. It describes the journey of a solitary figure through the urban landscape and records the marginal behaviour engendered in the arc of delinquency. The project stages or documents behaviour that ranges from manic playfulness and cheeky irreverence to reckless and often illegal acts. Sometimes the work is a literal record of the characters path through space. In one of the video works: 5-9 May Dawn, someone breaking into a sports field at dawn and climbing a 30 metre light tower, with no safety equipment, is all recorded via helmet-cam.

Delinquent behaviour is usually thought of as destructive, what really interests me is that this character avoids a descent into total chaos, perhaps because there is an inherent creativity to this journey. The path through space must be created, it does not pre-exist. 

Matthew Bradley is an Adelaide-based emerging artist whose exhibitions include Primavera at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Z at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Sydney, and solo shows at Downtown Artspace and at the Project Space, Contemporary Art Centre of SA.
