A solo exhibition by Aaron Hoffman

An online exhibition

from 24th of July

This work reflects the collective lifespans of my father and grandfather. The overlap and parallels of their lives embody the turbulent horrors of genocide, displacement and emmigration as well as oscillations in their adherence to orthodoxy. As their third generation, I am imprinted with inter-generational conflict to resolve the role of faith.

In the 1960s, my grandfather founded the clothing company, ‘Judy Garments.’ My father left school at seventeen to work in the family business. He closed the company in 2007 and passed away in 2010.

In 2019, I began to source and buy my (grand)fathers’ dresses in an effort to reclaim vestiges of my history, continuing an unresolved conversation with both men.

On 7 July 2021, I set fire to four of the dresses in the woods of the Djadjawurrung land.

Colour In
A solo exhibition by Kate Hendry

Opening event tba

Colour In is an exhibition of abstract sculptures and drawings that have been paired according to colour, line and shape.

The exhibited works move from a monochromatic series of drawings and the partnered sculpture into full coloured works which are true to an abbreviated colour wheel.
