Four new exhibitions open at Off the Kerb Gallery! ENTRY IS FREE

FRONT GALLERY : : COALESCE by BODE KLEIN
Coalesce is an exhibition of winged creatures, ground dwelling critters, and other living wonders, as seen through the lens of Joe Marchant and recreated in the art of Bode Klein. Intertwined in the works and materials used is an expression of the bond between father and son; a shared love of nature and its extraordinary offerings, a way of seeing and experiencing the world, and a bringing together of their individual expressions of those things through art.

BACK GALLERY : : DICHOTOMY by BAMBI JOHNSON
Dichotomy calls a contrast between Bambi’s working mediums of photographic print and illustration. Whilst her 2 dimensional photographic prints focus on the documentation of transient soft sculptures with a particular emphasis on the female form, her illustrations of found objects are essentially mnemonic in function: drawing from a time, a place an emotion. The subtle commonalities of subjects in isolation and a focus on light and shade, present in part as a spectrum of her specific approach to artistic expression.

UPSTAIRS GALLERY : : ZUCCULENTS by ZAC GRENFELL
Zucculents is a surreal visual documentation of random interactions Zac has had with the people, plants and animals that surround him. Originally started as a personal project during his residency in Japan, Zac continued to document these interactions in and around Melbourne. Zac has created a world overgrown with plants and inhabited by strange beast and humans.

SIDE GALLERY : : : DYSFUNCTIONALITY by ZAMARA ROBISON
Dysfunctionality is an investigation into how the embodiment of our own identities may be affected by oppressive influences projected by biased societal norms. This body of work questions the psychological rifts that emanate from the perpetuation of prejudiced standards and binary expectations. Propositional sculptural forms engage with tactility and bodily form speaking to ostracised bodies cast off as unhealthy and dysfunctional. These sculptural prosthetics sympathise with rejected identities and bodies, offering a therapeutic understanding through material contact and interaction.
