PRIMAL MUTATION | NOTFAIR | MELBOURNE
1 - 5 AUGUST
OPENING NIGHT THURSDAY 2ND AUGUST 6-8PM
Becc Orszag is taking part in NotFair, a statellite fair to the Melbourne ArtFair. Searing line work, distended bodies, apocalyptic visions and lyrical poetics combine in a combustible confluence in the second instalment of the rigorously independent art event NotFair. It is a return to the hand, and somewhat anti-digital, creating a mutated discourse across painting, drawing, installation and photography.
The NotFair curators – Melissa Amore, Sam Leach and Ashley Crawford – have prowled studios, grad exhibitions, artists’ run spaces, innumerable websites and the back lanes of Australia’s inner-cities seeking out the most powerful and potent of both a younger generation and un-discovered mid-generation artists to create a visual of the skilled and the visionary. At times bizarre and invariably original and gripping, the final line up will re-evaluate the intrusion of digital and the fleshy tactility of the organic.
