Recent exhibition: Pods, Pom-Poms and Other Souvenirs

Block 336 recently presented the first solo exhibition of work by studio artist Elysia Byrd. In PODS, POM POMS AND OTHER SOUVENIRS, between the bamboo stalks and saccharine-coloured fluffy ‘tree tops’, glimpses of painted worlds could be caught. The ‘trees’ stood like guardians of an imagined forest space and was made up of various anthropomorphic totems. Glossy mounds sat plumply between thin bamboo shoots. All of these objects waiting to be collected, cut down or copied and transported to the local tourist market where they could masquerade as genuine.

 

 

Recent exhibition: Polarised

Polarised was developed during a seven week residency by Laura Buckley and Kim Coleman and was held in the main exhibition space. In the collaborative exhibition the artists presented lenses that alternately allowed or blocked views into an installation, simultaneously reflecting and refracting projected moving image in a space, incorporating sculpture, lighting and sound.
