08 Oct Isabelle de Kleine | Un-define Exhibition | Curatorial+Co.
Curatorial+Co. presents an exhibition of new works by Perth-based artist Isabelle De Kleine from 13-23 October 2021. We are thrilled to be showing this exhibition both virtually and in-person at our Redfern gallery in keeping with the NSW Government’s Covid-Safe guidelines.
The exhibition ‘Un-Define’ is a rejection of the idea that we must always be categorised and defined. Our identities are constantly evolving and developing, yet we exist in a world that needs to define you. Define your art. Define your existence. But how can we be defined if we are inherently abstract in nature? Our memories fade and become distorted, and our perceptions are abstracted by our emotions, cognitive makeup and subconscious biases.
Drawing inspiration from a wide array of sources, including the post-internet art movement, 70s psychedelia and iconographic paintings. The colourful, intricate and haunting works use collage and image manipulation to further explore issues such as the digitalisation of self, the gender revolution and beauty expectations.
Bookings are essential.
Curatorial+Co. acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the country on which the gallery sits, The Gadigal People of the Eora Nation and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and cultures. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
