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.

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.
