Description

Visit Kings and explore their January exhibition program.

In the front gallery Bronte Stolz's 'I felt the luxury' considers the psychology of mortality salience as perceived through the semiotics of luxury. It emphasizes high-end consumption, its relation to social identity and the West's cultural coding through the endorsement and curation of luxury objects – the fetishisation of a Rolex watch or a pair of Gucci loafers for instance. The work aims to reveal the unconscious drives behind such behaviour, provoking the viewer to consider how much of themselves they may have inherited from external sources and, more significantly, why?

The middle gallery shows Alex Walker's 'Between'. How do you describe the space between spaces? The space between where I am looking and what my mind interprets? Between surface and representation. Between is an exploration of what lies between fixed and unfixed states. Of representation and form. How architecture, photography and surface work together to create images of their own.

In the side gallery Haydn Allen's 'Telemancer V' looks at waste as deity, as effigy, as energy. Haydn works with the cultural detritus – physical and digital – churned out by the city, manifesting installations composed of videos, photographs and assemblages. Artificial bodies vibrate in a constant state of flux; offerings to the cloud float by the intersection of the suburban and the spiritual.
