Greg Neville, installation at Tacit Contemporary Art
Tacit Contemporary Art has opened in new premises with a print show called Editions. The exhibition has been curated by printmaker Stephanie Rampton and includes some works by Kirsten Perry and me that were in our recent Face/Time show at the previous Tacit.
The new and much larger Tacit has six galleries of different sizes and is an attractive new art venue for Melbourne. It was designed and built in record time by the directors Keith Lawrence and Tim Bateson.
Editions, exhibition at Tacit Contemporary Art
Tacit gallery is opening 2013 with a group show of prints and works on paper called Editions.
The exhibition will feature several print artists, including me. I’ll be showing some pigment prints from my ‘id’ series that were recently shown in Face/Time. That was the exhibition I had in December with Kirsten Perry who is also showing in Editions.
Since Face/Time, Tacit has moved into a much larger space, four times larger, an ambitious step.
This is the invitation for my new exhibition Face/Time, a two-person show with my colleague Kirsten Perry. My half of the exhibition features my project Shroud, a series of graphic black & white representations of heads, derived from my passport photos going back decades. It’s a sort of self-portrait project but without reference to individuality. The heads are atomised by repeated photocopying, becoming abstracted forms like traces on a wall.
Kirsten’s images are from her Masters degree project, drawing the face using the saccadic eye movements captured by a special camera. She is displaying a sequence of prints showing the face image developing over time.
The exhibition is at Tacit Contemporary Art in Abbotsford. The website for the exhibition is face-time.net. The invitation cards were designed by Daniel Neville.
