A Lo-Res Letter, Exhibited

My series of digital ephemera, titled A Lo-Res Letter To You, will be included in the forthcoming exhibition Curtain Call, 1000 2000s S.O.A.P at Blindside artist run initiative in Melbourne. The exhibition is curated by State of Art Platform [S.O.A.P.].

The curatorial aim of the exhibition is "to examine the channels of exchange between artist and institution".

My artwork bypasses the institution to reach viewers directly.
A Lo-Res Letter To You explores DIY artistic production and direct dissemination using accessible tools: social media apps, a basic smartphone and internet connection. The flyer was made using an eight-year-old digital camera, cheap scanner, borrowed digital imaging software and an office supplies store print-shop.

As usual, my ongoing series A Lo-Res Letter To You is available to view via Snapchat and Instagram Stories. From Wednesday 7th to Saturday 17th December, images will be created specifically for the exhibition. My 'physical' contribution to the show is a stack of fliers with details of the exhibition and information on how to view the series. The fliers will be displayed on a plinth in the gallery for viewers to take. They are also being distributed in inner city areas of Melbourne this weekend.

Curtain Call, 1000 2000s S.O.A.P
runs from 7th to 17th December. Opening night is at 6 to 8pm on Thursday 8th December at Blindside, Level 7, Room 14, Nicholas Building, 37 Swanston Street, Melbourne CBD.

A Lo-Res Letter To You, 7 - 17 December, 2016.
