‘Monstrous/Ordinary’ is an exhibition curated Lilac City Studios. The show places together the work of artists from Sydney and abroad including Ben Reid, John Michael ParryMarian TubbsLewis Hammond.

Tittering between the ordinary and monstrous, the works share a sense of familiarity pierced by an idiosyncratic eeriness. Parry’s ersatz archaeological installation uses everyday objects that stand in for unfamiliar histories, creating deliberate misinterpretations of a ‘human narrative’. The discord of materials used by Tubb’s creates an irksome clash of high and low culture, the eeriness of internet imagery in its anonymity and simultaneous ubiquity, violate the delicacy of the silk they are printed on. Reid’s subtle curation of familiar parts forms an unsettled whole, while the distorted & fragmented bodies of Hammonds paintings are made somehow more ominous by the rich & painterly use of oil paint with which they are represented.

 

The show places these works together with the aim that the audience experience this feeling of a violated ordinariness and how the materials used by the artists communicate this theme.

JOINT CURATORIAL PROJECT UNDER LILAC CITY STUDIO W/ ELENA TORY-HENDERSON

The show was first conceived as an exhibition of ‘works on paper’, but more broadly incorporates the idea of the works that are preliminary to the larger praxis of the artist. These are, perhaps, works not generally displayed as final pieces, and show a new facet of each artist’s idiosyncratic way of making.
