Off the Kerb – Transgression

Transgression at Off the Kerb, 66B Johnston Street, Collingwood, until August 2nd. Curated by Michael Carolan was the Second Collectives ‘Transgression’ at ‘Off the Kerb’ Gallery on Johnston Street. The artists involved within the show were all RMIT MFA and BFA graduates, who put together a brilliant show based around the process of transgressing from their normative practise methods and media to create a curated show that presented both cohesion and jarring. The show took over the entire gallery, including the linking corridors and staircase, and the exhibited artists were: Beka Hannah, Caitlin Telford, Jess Sutton, Jordan Hoffman, Kate Walsh, Leonie Connellan, Mary Hackett, Michael Carolan, Paul Dew and Tul Suwannakit. The front room housed the works of four artists. A faux psychic reading set up, with QRcodes linked to videos made by Cait Telford clashed aesthetically but integrated conceptually with the other works. A custom made life size jigsaw puzzle adorned one wall, and on the facing side was a constellation type drawing, applied directly to the wall .... click her to read more and see more
