“When you can’t find what you are looking for it is usually because you can’t see it.” —A Constructed World

Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery presents An Eel in the Devil’s Haystack, an exhibition of new works by A Constructed World (ACW). Works by ACW often defy categorisation. Rather than developing as a series of objects, each impulse is given a certain autonomy, enabling each work to act as a prompt or gesture towards another. In this sense, An Eel in the Devil’s Haystack is linked to ACW’s work Partition #13, Assemblée des culs / Ass Assembly, presented in The National 2021: New Australian Art at Carriageworks, Sydney.

Contrary to transgressive fascination or psychoanalytic reading, An Eel in the Devil’s Haystack explores the idea of what we experience in the mode of reception is nothing more than a material sense of our own living. Influenced by post-structuralism and relational aesthetics, ACW explores how reality is perceived through cultural models.
