Sarah Contos’ new body of work brings together ideas concerned with object ontology, metamorphosis/transformation, existential inquiries, 1930s monster movies and feelings of a wonderful ‘come down’ after a big night to create an incredible installation spanning the entire gallery.

In The Bite Mark of a Butterfly, physical remnants of moments passed are played out in repurposed cane furniture and leather jackets – shifting familiar forms into curious objects totally removed from their previous life’s purpose. Inanimate objects seemingly ‘come to life’ as one might imagine blurry-eyed, while waking from a slumber at 3 am.

The Bite Mark of a Butterfly is Contos’ third solo show at the gallery.

 

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 28 November 2019
