Melbourne, June 2006. The story of an exhibition.

Longing for fishing















The 'boys' (Daniel and Grégory) have come up with an idea for the show. It's going to be an installation, about fishing and disco. Some kind of a fishing party that turns into a clubbing session.
First step: going to a fishing supplies store for inspiration. Dan and Greg are digging into the fishing rod department to search for a good-looking reels, exchanging their impressions in a language that I can't catch. I get completely fascinated with the lures department. I never thought that these tiny things could be so glossy and sparkling. Now I've got the point: it's gonna be really disco!

Dan and Greg's work would not be so interesting if they were not using materials in a completely twisted way. They have decided that the whole show will be made of ceramics. It's all about mixing undermined practices such as the hand-made, the low-tech, the subjective, with outdated and underrated techniques. There's a sort of punkish approach to them. Like you can never expect how things will be mixed. It's always a bit ahead for 'good taste'.

The invitation card to the show

Australian art is in fact also very crafty. All things that I've been seeing lately are perfectly executed hand-made pieces that rely on a sort of technical 'bravura' effect. This 'material-fetish' seems quite strange to me. From where I come we're just starting to reconsider crafts after a long long period of manufactured/ready-made artworks. And that's where Dan & Greg are coming from. They've just been fed up with the manufactured twist. Now I am wondering how they will react to an artistic context that is 'technique-friendly'. If it will generate some crisis? And what about the reaction of the local audience to their work?
