"Porous Space, Simultaneous Event"
Andrew Treloar

Opening: Wednesday 18 March, 6-8pm
Dates: 18 March – 4 April 2015

This exhibition extends Andrew Treloar’s embodied research; utilising gestures and conventions from sport and dance to generate continuously unfolding processes for art making. A series of programmed events presents the gallery as a porous exhibition space of movement research and active performance.

Connections are made between other venues and performers in concurrent dance developments and performances around Melbourne. Linkups include an overlapping exhibition at Bus Projects in Collingwood. These propose ‘the event’ as a repercussion of both alter-events and itself. Through these conditions of simultaneity, some events will be impossible to fully witness for performers and audience alike. Such events seek to construct a desire to be in two places at once.

The surrender of spatial fixity is also applied to time, where the artist’s existing creative relationships also stage each event as a present emergent repercussion of past collaborations.
