Certain Situations

29 June–31 August 201929 Jun–31 Aug 2019

#CertainSituations

This solo-exhibition brings together a number of energetic strands of Australian artist Agatha Gothe-Snape’s practice: visual and spatial interventions, score-based improvisation, and collaboration. Text, sculpture, moving image, and performance are organised in into a series of ambient spaces that merge with the artist’s internal monologues, producing a kind of psychic architecture. Acknowledging the performative interplay between audience and exhibition, visitors are choreographed by the spaces and objects they encounter.

The exhibition centres around Five Columns, a five-channel video installation by Wrong Solo—Gothe-Snape’s longstanding collaboration with performance artist Brian Fuata. This new work is supported by the IMA in partnership with Monash University Art Museum, and sets the stage for a series of live performances by five interlocutors who will each interpret Wrong Solo’s complex visual score.
