Blue curry / Rebecca Ounstead / Hannah Regel / Lisa Selby

The selected artists demonstrate and examine the exotic through the use of sound, colour, pattern and material associations. Asking the viewer to consider otherness and the ornamental in relation to objects, arrangement and performativity.

Bringing together artists making or re-appropriating objects that possess a familiarity, are suggestive of, or are utilised in order to serve another purpose. The works as objects begin to create fictions, fictions which alone can be widely interpreted, possessed and re-written.

Ounsteads’ performative work acts as a curatorial tool. Each artwork is performed with, the works, including the performer, become props. The objects collectively perform a fiction, whilst belonging to no fiction in-particular.
