Taut: An Exhibition Review

BY Miranda Hine / Queensland University of Technology | 09-Jul-2018
Systems of support make for precarious object interactions in Ally McKay's exhibition Taut. Objects are assembled in tentative arrangements, expected - somehow- to support each other against inescapable physical forces. Taut invites us into a beautiful balancing act between tension, failure and endurance. It's an act we have all at some point been familiar with. In systems where rules have already been set, either social rules or rules of gravity, we have little choice but to navigate them regardless of how little sense they make or support they afford us. Using simple materials linked to building and construction, Ally reflects on her own vulnerabilities and the resilience required to constantly stay upright against the pressure to collapse and fall within these systems. Ally's constructions are a determination to make things work. Her quiet installations embrace fragility and speak of growth and adaptation to new environments.

Return to the Stage • Solo Painting Exhibition of Akbar Yadegari • d’Angers Gallery • Semnan-Iran

BY d'Angers Gallery Press News Team | 07-Jun-2018
D'angers gallery is pleased to present "Return to the Stage" a selection of paintings created by Akbar Yadegari in recent years. Curator: Javid Ramezani. Akbar avoids the meanings given to his subjects; therefore he can concentrate on his own cognition; he starts a dialogue with the work at hand and continues working up to a point where it’s not clear which one is evolving, he or the painting. He thinks a true painting should change the artist as well as artist changes the painting. For Akbar "abstract" is striping any phenomenon of its imposed meaning. On display, mostly figurative are displayed with hints at the concept of migration. In his work, he has used various tools from brush to handkerchief and facial tissues. He has employed vibrant colors which are then smudged with duller hues.
