Pet Projects is pleased to present ‘All-Seeing Eyes by the Beige Garden Bed’, a group exhibition featuring the works of:
You’re halfway through an overnight train ride and it’s night and the tracks are laid through farm and bushland, so the unbroken darkness has made mirrors of the windows. As time drags on you start to feel like the carriage isn’t moving simply overland but downwards into the earth, through some secret portal, which feels right because this place you’re going belongs not just to another latitude but another dimension it’s so heavy with memory. It’s a place full of portals like this. Some you can chase down purposefully on streets you know the curve but not the colour of, now – rope swings still hanging by a thread, initials for since-changed names locked in concrete – but you can’t be certain there won’t be others that you’ll stumble on unexpectedly. Maybe the sun will point the shadows at just the right angle, or some old movie will turn up on TV, or a dead tree or a train moving trough the dark will reveal themselves to be monuments, or time machines. Those are the ones you need to be careful with. It’s hard to know where they’ll lead.
