602 || 17 - 21 AUG 2016 -

 

The void left by the recent collapse of the Melbourne Art Fair has prompted action from an alliance of leading Australian art galleries, resulting in a new art event in Melbourne in August, titled 602.

With the support of the City of Melbourne, Art Month, Art Money & Work Club, (with more to be announced within the week) the alliance of galleries will be exhibiting in a former electricity substation at 602 Lt. Bourke Street Melbourne.

The energy of 602 finds its roots in the rough and tumble Berlin style of creative collaboration. Nine sophisticated art galleries exhibiting in the basement of a raw, European-influenced space promises a fresh urban experience for art lovers.

Vipoo Srivilasa -

 Major Solo Exhibition in Bangkok

"Deity" is a collaborative project between collector Subhashok Angsuvarnsiri and artist Vipoo Srivilasa. Their partnership began when Srivilasa was introduced to Mr Angsuvarnsiri’s private collection. One particular object captured Srivilasa imagination; an antique painter’s frame detailed intricately with wood carvings. The frame is hand carved with delicate flower patterns and is often used to hold religious paintings atop its altar.

Based on the original purpose of the frame, Srivilasa created 7 enigmatic and unspecified deities that merge within them. Each was uniquely designed to fit within the wooden framed shrine made by Mr Angsuvarnsiri’s team. The frame was adjusted to accommodate 3D aspects of ceramic sculptures and become an elaborate stage for each of Srivilasa’s Deities.  

This exhibition is on view between 2-30 April 2016
