Rum­pus Room

Art Almanac - - What’s On -

Wag­ner Con­tem­po­rary 1 to 27 March, 2018 Syd­ney

Nick Hall’s lat­est se­ries ex­plores how at­ti­tudes and be­hav­iours in­ad­ver­tently af­fect our liv­ing con­texts and have con­se­quences on our so­cial, cul­tural and en­vi­ron­men­tal land­scape as near naked fig­ures are placed in a do­mes­tic set­ting – the rum­pus room – ex­posed to the con­di­tions of their se­cure and in­se­cure psy­cho­log­i­cal states. Se­lect sub­jects lounge about and gaze at im­ages of flow­ery gar­dens and serene park lakes while oth­ers hide from the world in card­board or tis­sue boxes, freak­ish pets play­ing and dream­ing idyl­li­cally be­side them.

Be­cause You’re Mine, oil on can­vas, 76 x 112cm Cour­tesy the artist and Wag­ner Con­tem­po­rary, Syd­ney
