"Kultopia" at Blindside ARI
Kultopia is the product of the collaborative workings of Amanda Airs, Shelley Grayden and Jack Rowland as mediated by the curator Adriane Hayward. Kultopia manipluates the artist/curator relationship; and communication, trust, authencity and automony will be tested. Collaboration extends creative practice and collective play, ultimately resulting in new exchanges. Kultopia is an immersive constructed environment. Abstracted detritus collected from the urban environment and references to the natural landscape are transformed in the gallery space. This artificial reconfiguration of everyday objects aims to create a kind of spatial simulacrum of reality. Art and space meld together in a sensory overload of objects and imagery.
This is a project developed by Make+Shift+Project, 2012.
