PRESENTED BY THE SUBSTATION


An exhibition of works by Kim Gordon.

While many would recognise Kim Gordon for her iconic work with Sonic Youth, she has maintained an exploratory art practice since the late 1970s. These works are the subject of a new exhibition at The Substation.

Object Of Projection presents a compelling survey of her works, including photographic and mixed media pieces. The exhibition also places focus on her video installations including the recently completed Picture Window and Los Angeles June 6, 2019, where Gordon utilises a guitar as a navigation device through public space in a thought-provoking commentary on performance, surveillance and urban life.

In tandem with the exhibition is a special presentation of her triptych video installation Proposal For A Dance. This embodied and psychedelic audio visual work features two female performers wielding electric guitars and wearing Rodarte dresses. Their gestures are an experimental choreography; their movements operate as a gesture towards anti-pop ideals and their implications for the female body.


WARNINGS

This exhibition contains flashing lights, sudden loud noises and sustained bright lights.


ACCESS

This exhibition is wheelchair accessible and gender neutral accessible toilets are available.


OPENING HOURS

Curated by Lawrence English. Presented by The Substation in collaboration with Brisbane Powerhouse and Room40.
