REFLECTIVE LULLABY, MICHAEL REID GALLERY, MELBOURNE ART FAIR
ROYAL EXHIBITION BUILDING, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
30 July to 3 August 2008
Michael Reid Gallery is proud to announce a solo project Reflective Lullaby by Gregor Kregar for their Melbourne Art Fair participation in July-August 2008. This project will transform the usual rectangular Art Fair stand into a real forest full of trees and other plants. The walls will be covered with a photographic print that will further enhance this unusual environment. Gregor Kregar will create a number of large complex geometric structures for wall and floor. These structures will be made out of laser-cur stainless steel and will be accompanied by a group of the artist’s own versions of large garden gnomes. The gnomes will be hand modeled and cast in stainless steel. The surfaces of both objects will be mirror polished and will reflect the surrounding environment. The two objects may appear like they have nothing in common yet they share similar histories where mysticism and science are intertwined.
This site-specific installation will create an interactive experience in which the viewer’s image will become part of a kaleidoscopic reflection on the surface of the work.
