NATHAN GRAY - What They Brought Back

Gertrude Contemporary’s project space at the 2010 Melbourne Art fair will showcase a new installation by Melbourne artist Nathan Gray. His new commission What they Brought Back is typical of his optimistic, dynamic and festive practice, and improvises connections between the network of myths and histories associated with Melbourne’s Royal Exhibition Building.

Art Exhibition previously on at Gertrude Contemporary in Australia.
From Wednesday 04 August 2010 to Sunday 08 August 2010

In this new work Gray refines his vocabulary of objects, reconfiguring them on a personal scale and highlighting the unpredictably of their interconnections. Presented as interlinking trains of thought, Gray’s materials explore the possibilities for intuitive, physical and phonic mutations of form, colour and movement. This work presents accumulations of mostly low-fi elements including mirrors, cassette tapes and ceramic sculptures that are connected through a networked mind-map revealing a multitude of unexpected links and logics that reflect Gray’s interest in improvised music and viral systems.
