Halloween at NOW Gallery is a celebration of cultural partnerships on the Peninsula with subtle dark humour

PENINSULA AFTER DARK

Breather – Doug Foster
Venue: NOW Gallery
18.00-21.00

Breather exploits a rarely used stereoscopic technique to immerse the viewer in a mesmerising scene of desperation that appears to take place within the water-filled confines of a rusty steel-plate box. It is part sculpture, part film and part optical illusion. Its cyclical, mantra-like narrative counterpoints human frailty with human tenacity. Two pairs of steel and glass eye-ports offer the only visible access to the interior.

Canopy Installation: 1:1 by Pearson Lloyd

1:1 – an installation by Pearson Lloyd of 20 three-metre-long plywood boxes. The composition will be re-configured routinely throughout the event, demonstrating how furniture can be used to choreograph behaviour and manipulate space; ideas at the core of PearsonLloyd’s practice.
