Soloists features new work by Mike Bourscheid and Kris Lindskoog – sculptures and works on paper that explore the concept of the sublime, it’s romantic underpinnings and inexorable ability to conjure notions of the heroic wanderer.
Channeling the alternate persona as a strategy for artistic production, both artists construct images, scenarios and encounters that embrace the romantic, absurd and fantastical.
Here, the notion of studio artist is transcendental - able to suspend disbelief, and operate in self- styled fictions that might evade contemporary trappings.
This exhibition is presented by Ship, a curatorial project by Kuh del Rosario and Warren McLachlan
