Darren Sylvester, Fortune Teller, 2019, Lightjet print, 160 x 120 cm. Courtesy: the artist and Neon Parc City Gallery, Melbourne.
A truly multidisciplinary artist who works in photography, sculpture, video, installation, performance and music, Sylvester’s work is the result of a detailed process of planning and research, with handmade sets and props photographed in the studio. Running concurrently with his much lauded survey exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria, Carve a future, devour everything, become something, this new exhibition for Neon Parc, including photography and sculpture, references pop cultural oddities and encompasses themes of desire, mortality and ennui.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Friday 31 May 2019
