About the event

Ennui Refigured

Freya Purdue & Marius von Brasch

According to Ian Buchanan in a recent text, there is a move in the current mode of appreciation of art toward the small screen of mobiles and other electronic devices, which provide a somehow perfect and self-reflective antidote for boredom.

Von Brasch and Purdue propose their visuals - in the face of the ‘new’, the fleeting mass commodity - as possible anchors for absorption, contemplation and non-expectation in the anonymity of the gallery.

Both artists contextualise their works with aspects of ancient and modern painting, symbolism and alchemical influences, so as to weave historical strands dealing with a similar interest in the dynamics of contemporary Becoming.

A catalogue will be available with an introduction written by artist and writer Ella Clocksin. There will be talk by Freya and Marius about the works and the ideas behind on Saturday 23 March 2pm, Ella will facilitate this talk.
