Three new exhibitions open at Off The Kerb gallery in February.

Entry : Free

FRONT GALLERY : : WE NEED A MYTH by ERIN GREER
Fables instruct, myths ignite the imagination and dreams form the template of our ever-shifting reality. The stories we tell teach us to interpret our world. They can, quite literally, shape the world around us. There is magic in the texture and form of telling.
Drawing inspiration from folklore, dreams, myths and legends, Erin Greer invites you to explore surreal narratives that illustrate her own eclectic personal mythology, with a collection of new illustrated collage and silk print works.

BACK GALLERY : : SURFACE by FREYA JOBBINS
“Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.”
Recycled quote by Banksy from Cruz

Provocative, Humorous, Disturbing.
Is it about the medium, the subject or the process?
Surface is the latest series of smaller works from Sydney based artist Freya Jobbins. Best known for her plastic humanoid sculptures, ‘plastic portraits’ and anthropomorphised animals. Constructed from dismembered parts of mass produced plastic dolls and toys, these works often push the boundaries of aesthetics and childhood memories.

UPSTAIRS GALLERY : : ANGRY GIRLS CLUB by GEMMA FLACK
A bedroom installation and art project exploring identity, self-image, self-doubt, individuality, intimacy and vulnerability. This exhibition focuses on the idea of using personal spaces as sanctuaries away from the external influences that mould the choices, thoughts and feelings of marginalised identities under patriarchal society. Angry Girls Club is a celebration of how girls and non-binary people adapt, rebel against and subvert expectations of femininity, as they find and form their own individual identities in the world.
