'Life, Death, Miscellaneous'
Amanda Wolf and Joseph Breikers at A-CH Gallery
Opening night Saturday 21 November 6pm
19 November - 27 November 2015
Amanda Wolf and Joseph Breikers are two Brisbane-based artists whose work shares an interest in the creative and critical possibilities of humour.
'Life, Death, Miscellaneous' stems from an exchange of favourite novels; one, Patrick Süskind’s Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, the other Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. Each tale features transformative spaces that lie beyond plain sight. In Perfume, Jean-Baptiste Grenouille slithers away from the world and into a cave on the Plomb du Cantal, and in Master and Margarita, Satan holds the hell raising Spring Ball of the Full Moon in a dimension beyond the known.
Through acts of disrupted mimicry and abstraction, 'Life, Death, Miscellaneous' explores the cave as a physical and psychological space; a sanctuary and a place of exile and purification.
