Wednesday night:



Opening Wednesday September 20, Don't Look Gallery

Artist, David O'Donoghue, and curator, Greg Shapley, have been spring cleaning at Don't Look Gallery. In 'Miscellanea', stuff that would normally stay covered in dust on an unreachable shelf will be brought into the gallery, given purpose, and 'networked' with other 'useless devices.

The forgotten, the obsolete, the broken will be resurrected into an incessantly whirring rhizome. Reel-to-reel tape recorders, fluorescent lights, record players, timers, old speakers, film projectors, etc etc. etc. will be rigged up into a machine that is both entertaining and terrifying, fragile yet relentless.

'Miscellanea' is both a profound statement about obsolescence, and a captivating spectacle - lights, cameras and action - all rewired into a chorus line of mechanical zombies.

This 'Borgian' creation will be an act of inspiration from a moment of electrified passion, and as such will be entirely constructed within the constraints of a typical working day. O'Donoghue will have eight hours from when he clocks on to the launch of the exhibition to spawn his irrepressible child.

David O'Donoghue is a Sydney based Artist; who crosses territories of installation, sound design, video, object making, drawing, and contemporary bricolage. He has an interest in post-cultural mythology, micro-philosophy, and self-propelled propaganda mechanisms. His most recent exhibition was The Nerve Metre at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, February 2006.
