As part of in inaugural Outer Space event, we commissioned local artist Sam Kariotis to create two works to be displayed on banners in our foyer windows. The result is Waterloo and Inferno.
Currently based in Melbourne, Sam Kariotis is a multi-disciplinary artist combining forms of digital collage with projection/ light art. His work reimagines classical Baroque paintings, exploring themes of magic, sexuality, and the unconscious, he aims to bring intuitive and surrealist processes into the medium of collage. As a trans artist, he is fascinated by the manipulation of perceptions, and creating “natural glitches” in his works.
These works are best viewed from Market Street, and our windows are illuminated every night.
