Curator Sebastian Goldspink writes on Drew Connor Holland’s exhibition in the current issue of Art Collector:

“Connor Holland is best known for his works on hand-made paper grounds which are created by pulping the paper-based ephemera of his daily life. This consideration of the autobiographical and the digital is extended into his latest work made under the spectre of Covid-19.

“The ‘nadir’ referenced in his exhibition title could easily be interpreted as referencing our current global upheaval, but in actuality relates to the artist’s process of recovering from a devastating breakup that defined his 2019. The artist collaborated with friends on many of the works, which came from IRL dress-up parties and clown costumes disseminated to social media. In this world, Connor Holland becomes a clown prince in a celebratory re-imagining of his youthful passion for the band Insane Clown Posse and their Juggalo aesthetic. He first embraced this aesthetic as a youth, as a performative rally against the dominant heteronormative culture of his adolescence in suburban Newcastle.”

The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures.

The exhibition can also be viewed online. View exhibition here.
