Join us for the final week of Archie Moore’s solo exhibition at Gertrude Contemporary, Dwelling (Victorian Issue), the fourth iteration of the artist’s series of large-scale architectural installations exploring the artist’s personal and transgenerational memories.
Through his detailed recreation of domestic interiors–precisely brought to life with objects of both symbolic significance and banality–Moore offers viewers an immersive, emotive, and disorienting journey through both lived and speculative experiences. The exhibition considers the porosity of memory and the transience of ‘home’: how spaces of safety can become dangerous or inadequate, and the often-violent erasure of the histories of place upon which these structures are built.
For further insights into this iteration of Moore’s work, you can read perspectives in Art Guide, The Saturday Paper and Memo Review. Read Archie Moore in conversation with Paris Lettau on the Gertrude website.
Catalogues are available to purchase from Archie Moore, 1970 – 2018, presented at Griffith University Art Museum, via the Gertrude website.
