Studded Blood

Sydney's GRANTPIRRIE Gallery embarks on a journey of the unexpected on Thursday August 26th with the opening of three exhibitions that turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Melbourne photographer Mimi Kelly reveals the less-than-glossy underbelly of fashion shoots and pornography in Gallery 2. Her collection of self-portraits sexualize and beautify everything that is anything but - we see her vomiting vibrant bouquets of red roses, and her mouth flooding with diamante studded blood.

Showing in Gallery 1 is Richard Giblett's reimagination of everyday objects. Common objects such as garbage bins and fire escape stairs reworked to become unfamiliar oddities.

Sydney artist Maria Ionico explores a history fit for a fairytale in the GRANTPIRRIE window. Ionico's father was found as a newborn on the shores of the Ionic sea, and named for the waters that bore him. Feelings of displacement and yearning for a long-lost family have inspired her installation.

All exhibitions run at GRANTPIRRIE Gallery, 86 George St. Redfern, until Saturday September 18th 201. www.grantpirrie.com
