Today I found something I was not looking for: a cloud, shaped like the word no. I tried to recall the meaning of this word,
but was only reminded of the time I was told that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Before all this, I believed that
my potential lay with other people; but I am becoming an avoidant-type, avoiding even myself. After walking endlessly
through a dead-end world, I found a net for catching thoughts. I spent long days and nights collecting many thoughts, and was left with
a nameless confusion of attitudes, beliefs, hopes and fears; human, animal, machine. What did they sound like, what did they feel like; sharp, taut, soft or liquid?
Bad Habitus – a group show where you might find something you were or weren’t looking for, where “the present is no less dark
than the past, and its mystery is equal to anything the future might hold”
– (Paul Auster).
Jnr presents ‘Bad Habitus’ at Mullers Gallery, 104 Longmarket Street. Opening Wednesday 4th May 5 – 9pm. Thursday 5th May (in line with First Thursdays) 5.30 – 9 pm. Exhibition runs until 29th May 2016
‘Bad Habitus’ is a collaborative project between three entities. Mullers Gallery, situated in an old Art Deco building from 1890, is a newly formed versatile exhibition venue where upcoming artists can represent their own work. The artists on the show are recent graduates from Michaelis School of Fine Art and formed this exhibition motivated in equal parts by friendship and the desire to explore alternate gallery spaces. Lastly, the show was co-conceptualised through Jnr, a DIY artist-run project space committed to experimentation, creativity and exploring art “as an invisible frame for seeing and thinking, rather than as an object of delectation or connoisseurship” (H. Kinsman, Artthrob, Feb 15, 2016).
Monday to Friday: 9.30 – 4 pm
Saturday: 9.30 – 12.30 am
