About

The opening show for the newly launched space, If I Could Sing Only One Song, showcases the work of artists Aaron Angell, Anna Hodgson and Isabel Mallet. The show takes its title from a lyric by British psych-folk legends,The Incredible String Band. Working closely together, Angell has curated their individual practices into a complex dialogue where the works react to and support one another. A specially designed sculpture table literally provides a common platform for artists to show works in progress, video work, cultural artifacts, small sculptures and prototypes non-hierarchically together. Featuring a lecture on the ‘environmental and artistic concerns of humans' in Elvish, a pillar of pineapples and a black photocopier providing free photocopies for visitors, the show promises to be a fresh and active presentation of the artists relationship with their esoteric source material. At the heart of the show is Aaron Angell's Culture Canon. This sculptural periodical shelving unit foregrounds the artists' shared research material in the same space as the sculptural pieces, providing a playful potential for the ‘reading' of the works dictated by the artists whim. This open and reciprocal relationship between artists and audience sets tremendous precedence for Sisters Burns vision for the future of the space.
