Andrew Varano @ Venn Gallery

Event Title: Final Shavasana.
Participating Artists: Andrew Varano

Venue: Venn Gallery, 16 Queen Street, Perth 6000.

Description: Varano's previous lo-fi kinetic sculptures utilised repetitive
movements and sequences to draw the viewer into points of focus within a
sculptural assemblage. Through the use of these specific aesthetic
strategies and their accompanying soundscapes, the works aimed to engineer a
focus, which could be equally described as both zen-like and neurotic.

Final Shavasana builds upon these concepts to examine repetitive movement
through undertaking studies of the human body in the state of exercise and
structured poses. The artist suggests that gym equipment can be seen as a
form of kinetic sculpture and that the repetitive movement that these
dictate can provoke a kind of mind/body split, causing one to experience a
sense of disembodiment.

Dates: 23 October 2013 to 22 November 2013.
Opening Times: Wed - Sat, 11am - 5pm.
