Extensions of a No-Place
Solo exhibition at Flinders Street Gallery, 2012
Extensions of a No-Place is an unplanned and borderless landscape that redefines itself as it expands and colonises new territory. This Cartesian wasteland proposes ‘infinite’ territory – a tautology that contradicts conventional strategies of landscape imaging.
The exhibition consists of 36 connecting works on on paper that create a large scale, disjointed map of an imaginary world. The Plexiglas sculptures, reconstructed out of the fragments of a previous sculpture, inhabit the gallery as potential buildings from this world. Inside the sculptures are projected miniature films, in which the protagonists of Extensions of a No-Place wander endlessly, diffracted throughout the transparent sculptures.
