Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery presents ARBOUR ARDOUR, the most recent in a series of room-based flourishes by Gary Carsley. The new works contest among other things the increasing correspondence between spectacle and material privilege in both art and life and the collapse of historical memory, with all of its attendant intended and unintended consequences.

In these immersive environments, laboriousness can be best understood as a calculated expression of queer disruption. The work takes form as a multi-perspectival pergola elaborated by architect Renjie Teoh around 3 IKEA PAX closets. A suite of geometrically shaped Draguerreotypes positioned by the artist act as a series of outward looking windows and doors. Liminal and latently lavender, this exhibition continues the artist’s engagement with the garden as a trans-cultural, temporally fluid stage where theory becomes practice.

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