Solo Exhibition "Adult Memory Walk"

By Ashley D Bird

Each of us can remember back to moments in our past when time had a perceived slowness and imagination was the most essential skill to create worlds within worlds. Where play was something that required no end point or conclusion, just the immersion into the fantastical stories and scenarios individual to the relationship between a child and their toys. This work is informed by the fantasy of nostalgia and its power to activate a compulsion towards specific objects from childhood, and how these objects create an obsessive discourse between the fantasy of the past and the reality of the present.

Black Cat Gallery is a unique space in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, aiming to support local emerging contemporary artists and also showcase emerging South-East Asian artists in Australia. The space is unique and provides a flexible floor plan to cater for a variety of mediums and installations. With a developing calendar for 2016 already underway the mix of Artists will showcase the high calibre work being created throughout Australia and South-East Asia. We promote international exchange show for local artist and provide art education program.
