FRONT GALLERY: ELANOR AMOR (SA) - SUBSTRUCTURES
Opening: 5:30, Wednesday 2nd May
Exhibition ran: 3rd - 19th May
Substructures is an examination of temporary environments, whether they be physical or social. Taking influence from Roland Barthes’ ‘A Lover’s Discourse’ and Celine Condorelli’s ‘Support Structures’. Substructures uses construction site materials to depict disconnection, otherness and, more precisely, that which constitutes “support.”
This body of work is influenced by my daily commute through the North Terrace roadworks and how a constantly evolving landscape offers both a present inconvenience and a guided shift in our daily navigation. Substructures touches on desire for past and future, whilst feeling isolated and inconvenienced by the way we are forced to navigate the present.
