OTHER THINGS

 

The group exhibition Other Things brings together the works of Jelena Telecki, Nina Knezevic and Gregory Sharp. Other Things presents three artists intricate attempts to represent and change the impossible, unexplainable or unresolved.

Nina Knezevic depicts a mirage of lived experiences, faces and landscapes, which combine remembered elements of the past alongside cipher like familial photographs. An ode to non-linear life narratives as quiet unnerving drawings, Other Things refers to the problematic and persuasive materialism of the remembered past.
In these works, places inform the experience of self, time and place and their metaphysical relationship to the present.

Greg Sharp considers an artist's aesthetic expression to be an externalised proxy of the psyche, and taken as such, considers it the supreme attempt at communication.
However, even when supported by rhetoric, this communication is often weak - an artist's artworks are always other things - both other to the artist and other to an audience.
In Sharp's recent use of watercolour; an immediate & unforgiving medium, which he applies in a single sitting, working from a private image source, he strips his expression down to the technical base, bringing him close to abstraction, but remains in the representational.

Aiming to transform a memory through her work by mimicking the uneasy way she remembers the past, Jelena Telecki's work alternates between the accurate depictions of the past she aims to recover and those that have changed the past into something different. This difference, or Otherness, lies in the perception of the past affected by the knowledge of the traumatic in -between events in Telecki's home country, which have left a great impact both on her life and art practice.

Art is intrinsically other, Other Things highlights the 'unique otherness' as an essential part of the art practice of three artists.
