Chris Bennie
Move
4th October - 19th October

Move is Chris’s first solo exhibition in Brisbane since completing a Doctorate of Visual Art in 2009. The show is a culmination of several works that explore movement, time, dislocation and the transformation of objects no longer considered useful. The exhibition is split across two venues – The Hold Artspace and Davies Park. The Hold hosts a suite of videos that use a caravan motif to examine darkness with grace, and the Reparation Room – an installation of photographs and documents detailing the artists recent relationship with Bundaberg. Directly across the road, Davies Park will host The Kissing Swans, a 22-foot sculpture made from a flooded caravan.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body, and by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments.
