FABBO show opened at ANCA last night curated by our very own Sabrina and CCAS super favourite Anja (pictured above doing the dishes which is the odious task of every curator). As it happened it was a very cool opening and as Gus said to the curatorium, “You guys really know how to curate a crowd, the room smells better than usual!
HABITUAL//RITUAL, brings together 10 artists from across the country spanning sound, ceramics, painting and print; emerging to established each artist explores the nooks and crannies of everyday life.
This is a group of artists who revel in the monotony of their piles of washing and see the humour in our pursuit of an ideal home. They elevate the microwave and the humble meat pie, they interrogate the very essence of our dwelling spaces.
Featuring work by Grace K Blake, Kirsten Farrell, Shaun Hayes, Reuben Ingall, Patrick Larmour, Alycia Moffat, Al Munro, Eadie Newman, Leena Riethmuller and Kai Wasikowski, HABITUAL//RITUAL presents a diverse mix of practice and ideas exploring the means in which the domestic environment infiltrates artistic practice. Ranging in both medium and scale this selection of artists explore the absurdity of the everyday.
HABITUAL // RITUAL is a reflection upon the way in which domesticity informs the process of making, a celebration of the nuances of the everyday. It is an exhibition which invites audiences to reconsider the way in which we interact with domesticity, a representation of these private performances within the home.
