KEIRAN GORDON




















Uranium Aesthetic 

Main room 20th - 30th November 2019
Opening 6 - 8 pm Wednesday 20th November 2019

Monochromatic paintings by Keiran Gordon push the limits of materiality and embrace natural variation. Uranium Aesthetic expresses cloud in its most dynamic and unstable form. 

RO MURRAY


BLACK VERTICAL AND RED HORIZONTAL

Main room 6th-16th November 2019
Opening 6 - 8 pm Wednesday 6th November 2019
Thursday-Saturday, 1-6 pm

This pairing of Factory 49's two exhibition spaces enables artist Ro Murray to speak expansively from a reductive visual vocabulary made up of dualities and the spaces between them. Returning to a signature colour palette of black and red on white, with rectilinearity reduced to horizontal and vertical placements, the distinct processes of printmaking and weaving interact unexpectedly as an anchor of human scale in site-specific installations. The creation of these transient interior spaces operate as a platform for an ephemeral architecture of protest. 

MERRYN HULL



Poetics of Imminence #I

Main room 23rd October - 2nd November 2019
Opening 6 - 8 pm Wednesday 23rd October 2019
Thursday-Saturday, 1-6 pm

The Poetics of Imminence #I at Factory 49 is the first in a series of three exhibitions by Merryn Hull that explores the moment in the viewer-artwork encounter that the viewer experiences as something that has not-yet but is about-to happen. The significance of this moment rests in its potential to insinuate social and 'political' meaning in three-dimensional works. It is by showing that transformation is possible that these assemblage sculptures evoke the experience of dislocated perceptions and different ways of seeing and understanding the contemporary world. 

IAN THOMAS














circle sequence

Main room 9th - 19th October 2019
Opening 6 - 8 pm Wednesday 9th October 2019
Thursday-Saturday, 1-6 pm

Ian Thomas has an obsession  with circles. Incessantly drawing them in rows of three becomes an unthinking act after a while, semi-mechanised even, given that the circles are traces of vinyl records - 12", 10" and 7" - drawn at different speeds, naturally; the artist's body the arm across a (turn)table, his hand its stylus. Thomas practices art in a way that allows us to see an unbroken continuity between the natural and designed worlds, between thinking and actions: from the natural gestures of the hand, to thinking around a problem, to the spinning of the globe.

Cate Norton and Karmyn Gibson's reductive objects and

an interest in the industrial, and its attending materiality
and precesses to sit between a 'real' and made up world.
