new tricks 2 – group exhibition – 08.06.18


They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but here’s the thing… it’s damn tricky to teach a new dog old tricks.

In fact, tricks are decidedly tricky.

In 2017, a group of artists embraced the unknown. Challenged to produce a new work from beyond the realm of their usual practice, New Tricks was mesmerizing: fine artists let loose with laser cutters; architectural timber lamps defied logic but not beauty; pencil-drawing wonder was transmuted into a lolly-formed installation that was a shrine to kitsch…

This year, there’s more. Fifteen local artists bring their obscure game and accept the challenge to use a technique, process of medium that is, as yet, possibly still unknown to them. Expect to see virtual reality, film, hand-cut printmaking, plasma-lined reimagining and more…
