> DESCRIPTION

Levi Hanes presents a new series of works with underlying themes of aspiration, utility, domestication and the absurd. The works explore the exhibition format and its impact on the act of viewing objects and art.

Starting with the idea of the ‘group show’, the exhibition plays with ideas of authenticity, the artist’s ‘signature style’ and proper exhibition formality. Subtly working with the format of the show and how the viewer receives it, the artworks draw on the history of their mediums in a self-reflective manner with playful nods to domestic furniture both in the interplay of art as useful object and the useful object made useless by intervention of the artist.
