Sphere - OTK'S 11th Bday Show

phere is an exhibition which examines the human condition; birth, growth, emotion, aspiration, conflict, 
and mortality. It discusses the meaning of life; why are we here, why do we exist. It delves into aspects of transformation
and change -going from dark to light. Sphere investigates the topic of existentialism as discussed
by philosophers such as Kierkegaard, Nietzsche and Sartre.

Off the Kerb celebrates its 11th birthday with this group exhibition by donating 10% of proceeds
from sale of art to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre www.asrc.org.au

The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) is both a place and a movement. 
They are an independent not-for-profit organisation, whose programs support and empower
people seeking asylum. As a movement, they mobilise and unite communities to create lasting social and policy change.

Personal Avatar by John Nicholson

Personal Avatar by John Nicholson at Sophie Gannon Gallery

28 March - 14 April 2018 - Opening night

Personal Avatars features works that are experiential, calling for viewer presence and participation. Standing before a mirror fabricated from multiple layers of coloured screens, the viewer scans for their reflection on the other side, with each work incomplete until the viewer places themselves within it. The presence of the viewer activates the work and vice versa. Negotiating the personal avatars is personal and unique. Four layers of reflective material referencing the colour separation process, CMYK, and digital technologies, give the transferred image a depth implying a real space. In the gallery, the viewer’s reflection takes on a kind of backlit, televisual code, a distorted version of the body while it moves through time and space. Every move and interaction with light is recorded. The viewer must decode and rebuild images constantly. Just as an image has been processed, it disappears with a flash of light like a TV powering off.
