George Egerton-Warburton @ PICA

Event Title: George Egerton-Warburton: Oulipian Poetry. 
Participating Artists: George Egerton-Warburton. 

51 James Street Northbridge . 

Description: Administration is just Oulipian Poetry is a significant solo exhibition by Western Australian born, Melbourne-based artist, George Egerton-Warburton. Inspired by the rule generated poetry techniques of the Oulipo, a group of French and Italian writers and mathematicians in the 1960s, the artist draws on personal anecdotes to translate traumatic and banal everyday experiences into sympathetic structures. A large architectural intervention will see carved pieces of the gallery walls suspended from a sprawling 7 metre mobile, an exploration of the ways in which our creative energies and small artistic gestures have the power to affect the balance of power. Egerton-Warburton‚s interconnected installation will see the gallery filled with paintings, videos, sculptures and the scent of rain on dirt, as it collectively forms a sensorially charged, contemplative environment.

Dates: 13 September 2014 to 2 November 2014. 
Opening Times: Tuesday - Sunday, 10am - 5pm.
