TO DISRUPT THE REGULAR

Opening

THREADS

D/O, Event, OpeningElliott Cole

Artist and arts educator, Dr. Mark Elliot-Ranken, comes to Disorder Gallery this June with his latest exhibition Threads.

“Suppose you came as an explorer into an unknown country with a language quite strange to you. In what circumstances would you say that the people there gave orders, understood them, rebelled against them and so on. The common behaviour of mankind is the system of reference by means of which we interpret an unknown language.”

- Ludwig Wittgenstein Philosophical Investigations

Wittgenstein's words inspired Mark Elliot-Ranken's latest series of abstracts, varied in scale, subject matter and in the unique approach of Mark's distinctive visual 'language'.

According to Mark “To do as Wittgenstein asks us to do, that is create or at least try and interpret that ‘unknown language’ especially in regard to the terrain of our inner world is to pick up the threads of our own self…that which makes ‘our-self’. Such a language is a tool for exploration rather than simply communication.”

Mark Elliot-Ranken's Threads opens Thursday June 6th from 6-8pm and runs through Saturday June 22nd at Disorder Gallery.

Disorder Gallery presents

D/O.29 'Trove'

a group exhibition from artists...

Helen C-M - Emily Isabel Taylor - CrazyEyes

Helen C-M takes us on her evolving journey of colour and abstraction using the simple floral landscapes of Little Riley Street, in Surry Hills. What emerges as each work resolves itself is an honest and often raw exchange between the local environment and the artist herself.

Emily Isabel Taylor Disorder Gallery 3.jpg

Sydney based visual artist Emily Isabel Taylor brings us 'Supreme'. Her work raises questions around the limits of photography outside of its traditional margins investigating the possibilities that pictorial matter can obtain through reproduction and recombination, opening the medium up to new forms of hybridization such as installation, collage and video.

Working through the trash, CrazyEyes uses the relationships of colour and shape to create vibrant and uplifting human stories, reminding us that beauty is simply a matter of perspective.‘Trash is Treasure’ is a light-hearted look at what is often discarded, neglected, left behind and the fine line between ‘forgotten’ and ‘fabulous’. This is their first exhibition.

 

Please join us for opening night of ‘Trove’ on Thursday May 16th from 6-8pm.

D/O.29 'Trove' will be on display through June 1st at Disoder Gallery
