Another Yummy Fantasy
A brief survey on some ideas behind Melbourne sculpture right now.
Artists Christopher LG Hill, Ash Kilmartin, Joshua Petherick, Kate Smith and Alex Vivian have come together to present Another Yummy Fantasy II / trololol at TCB Art Inc, an artist-run initiative in Melbourne. Curated by Kate Smith and Alex Vivian and on until 19 February, the exhibition looks at various ideas surrounding sculpture in Melbourne's current artistic climate.
This is the second instalment of the exhibition, the first, Yummy Fantasy, being held in Studio 17 at Gertrude Contemporary in September last year. The works explored similar materials in monumental scale. Perhaps befitting to the comparative size of the two spaces, this second presentation seems more refined and ordered in nature. If you are in Melbourne over the next few days this exhibition is well worth a visit.
