‘The Shock of the Goo’ showcases a series of recently completed works by London based artist Malarko Hernandez. These works, part of an on going project, are formed on a base of juvenile tendencies and direct action.
Impatience and questionable humour flow through the works and are coupled with naive energy and an inquisitive subject matter, leaving the viewer asking:
What is Goo? Where does Goo come from? Or even the ambivilous, Am I Goo?
Cues are taken from the most important artistic movements from the last century in line with the title of the show, which itself is a take on the 1980 Robert Hughes Documentary that examines the rise and fall of Modern Art.
The exhibition is largely focused around crudely made ceramics, and represents an exploration of process, embracing the qualities of the physical medium, clearly expressing the idiom; out with the old and in with the the Goo.
