installations at Enex 100

2009 September 19

PAUL CAPORN: The excavator, titled The Golden Age, is constructed from bright yellow plastic bins, normally used for recycling or industrial spill kits. It climbs the rubble of its own by-products and perhaps, as its title suggests, the utopian golden era it represents will end in destruction. NICOLE ANDRIJEVIC: is an installation artist who works with ephemeral materials such as sugar, confectionary, plastic novelty objects to create her installations. Her work explores notions of momentary happiness, artificial paradise, utopia, child-like wonder and blissful states of being that arise due to our culture of mass consumption. Nicole gained her art degree at Curtin University and completed Honours at the VCA in Melbourne in 2005. She was also the winner of the 2007 Joondalup Acquisitive Art Award, and completed a residency at PICA in 2007. She also collaborates with Tanya Schultz as Pip & Pop.
