At The Gallery: APT 8 at GOMA

Some bigger cities and art capitals of the world have many big galleries and museums. Here in Brisbane we have QAG and GOMA and from time to time we get some interesting and world class exhibitions. Some of my favourites over the years have been KusamaValentino and the Asia Pacific Triennials (APT).

These are a couple of my favourite works at this years APT 8 which where full room installations, and are inspiring me at present.

Notes are from QaGoma.

“All The Rivers Run Into The Sea. Over.” / “Copy. Yet, The Sea Is Not Full. Over/”

Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, Hesam Rahmanian. Dubai.

“A recreation of the artists Dubai home-studio.
A medley of influences from Persian poetry, modernist art, illuminated manuscripts, miniature pairing, pop culture and political events, embedded in daily life and everyday objects.”

I enjoyed this one for the immersive surrealist feeling, like walking in a room from some dream where everything is in place but crazy.

Min Thein Sung. Myanmar.

“From Another Realm series referencing the years that Myanmar was restricted from international trade and commercial mass-production, by focusing on simple handmade toys that people created as copies of foreign toys seen on TV and in books… This work is symbolic of the slippage that occurs…when a community is isolated, but also celebrates a spirit of creativity, imagination and adaptability.”Dividing-Line 160408GOMAapt8_098_M_P
