Emergency Responses


Emergency Responses opens today at First Site Gallery, RMIT. This is a colloborative exhibition with Victoria Jost, which explores how individuals create systems in order to make sense of an unpredictable and chaotic universe.

Victoria’s work looks at the creative act as essential to survival, using fantasy and imagination as an approach, her ten metre drawing questions the distinctions between the real and the unreal, fiction and reality. Victoria’s systems use the four elements as a starting point, as the most basic matter of the universe, to create a diagram of the world.

Carolina’s work looks at impulse towards systematization as a paradoxical attempt to use find freedom through the imposition rules and constraints. Her series of drawings and her short film consider the tension that arises from creating systems, structures that simultaneously broaden and narrow our perspectives and ways of understanding of the world.
 
Both the artists in their works have pushed the idea of systems to the point where they break from of being systems and become redundant structures, that have lost their functionality and become absurd, Victoria’s through the use of scale and Carolina’s through the intentional use of flawed logic.

At this show you will see a film I have made with the assistance of Tim Sharp
