MUGGED!

- group exhibition, 2018

6 to 23 June

To add some warmth to our gallery this June, we have invited artists to make a selection of unique mugs. Each Saturday we will fill purchased mugs with a different complementary hot beverage, so that gallery-goers can escape the cold and enjoy the shows with a warm drink in hand.

MUGGED! will include specially made pieces by emerging, mid-career and established artists with varying approaches to making, allowing for diverse interpretations of this ubiquitous object.

Alex Karaconji, The Flaneur

- Black Box Projects, 2018

6 to 23 June

"The Flaneur" is an animation that I began in 2015 and finished towards the end of 2016. It depicts a loosely autobiographical walk from Taylor Square to Circular Quay. At the time, I was studying my Masters degree at the National Art School and I was walking around Darlinghurst on a daily basis. The flaneur was a concept that I discovered during my research and which I found, to my delight, provided an honest conceptual framework for my art practice. The term ‘flaneur’ originated in Paris during the 19th century and it refers to a solitary person (at the time, male) who aimlessly strolls around the city. The concept of the flaneur helped to facilitate my pursuit of what Charles Baudelaire once described as “the epic side of actual life”. The Flaneur is my attempt to capture the epic side of urban life as seen through the slightly distorted lens of a city-wandering artist.

A series of recent memento mori and plein air travelogues in watercolour, pencil and mixed media. These introspective observational drawings represent the current phase of my ongoing creative engagement with the landscape, material and community of the far south coast of NSW (Yuin country).
