Maria Park and Branden Hookway: Training Setting on view at Cornell University's Architecture Art Planning

October 11, 2017

Congratulations to Maria Park and Branden Hookway for their collaborative exhibition on view through November 17, 2017.

Training Setting investigates social and control protocols using a diagrammatic language of flight cockpits and table settings. To train within a technologized environment is to mediate both formal and informal instruction — where a formal understanding of information and procedure coexists with a tacit knowledge of embodied action. In this sense, training is inherently an orientation toward both the actual and the virtual, as performance draws upon informal knowledge according to formalized protocols. The exhibition explores this hybrid state of training through a series of paintings, sculptures, and drawings.

The project now consisits of about 30 pairs and continues to grow. According to Mann, "The paintings aren't intended as illurations of the poems nor are the poems descriptions of the paintings. The relationship has worked on a more intuitive and feeling level, the sensual, imagistic and the imaginative."

GARY CARSLEY: SCIENCEFICTIVE at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane

May 31, 2014

The Institute of Modern Art is pleased to present the new installation Sciencefictive by Brisbane-born, Sydney-based established artist Gary Carsley. This immersive project transforms two galleries into an interior garden, seen through apertures, or Moongates, that puncture the white walls of the gallery. As visitors follow a path laid throughout the galleries, they will encounter these Moongates, which serve as windows onto gardens from around the world. These are displayed in the IMA galleries in a physical relationship to each other that they would have if Brisbane were the centre of the world. The entire work therefore functions as a giant mappa mundi, and encourages us to contemplate the complex balance between social construct, geography, and flora that characterises gardens. While today’s gardens are typically produced by landscape architects, Carsley suggests an affinity between the process of conceiving and creating a garden and that of the artist—bringing land, sea, and sky together into evocative spaces that offer journeys and compel reflection.
