Shop Talk | Alex Zubryn
Alex Zubryn, 2019
Alex Zubryn’s practice articulates meaning about community life and suburbia, specifically through visually recording the streets in relation to still life/objects such as commercial products, decorative artefacts, edible objects and ephemera.

In recent times, recognisable Melbourne urban locales have been significantly reconstructed. Vibrant individual shops containing objects representing diverse cultures are under threat from gentrification. Shop Talk explores artefacts from just such a shop. Viewed from the street, the entire double fronted windows are filled with shelving structures with a random display of objects ranging from garden dwarfs to religious effigies. Decorative items stacked, wrapped and facing various directions are relic-like forms waiting for interpretation.

The investigation of this subject matter is a narration of suburban culture, ethnicity and the process of gentrification.
