Inferno Wonderland

Visual Arts - Solo Exhibition


Type Of Work


  • Visual Arts - Solo Exhibition

Abstract


  • Inferno Wonderland is an interdisciplinary

    collaborative installation constructed by

    Agnieszka Golda and Martin Johnson that

    attempts to critique some firmly established

    systems of knowledge by evoking a crosscultural

    mytho-sacral territory, a space situated

    on the edges of visible and invisible worlds. The

    mixture of interconnected objects, including

    paintings, textiles and wooden sculptures is

    used as a device for negotiating the affective,

    emotional and sensory dimensions of bodily

    encounters in intercultural contexts.

    Agnieszka Golda and Martin Johnson are

    currently based in Wollongong. Through Inferno

    Wonderland, both artists draw on their recent

    field studies in France, Poland and Japan to

    explore how narratives invested with politics of

    emotion shape bodies and spaces and how

    such political practices can be resisted through

    the immersive, ritualistic and fragmented

    narrative modes of contemporary installation art.

    Golda and Johnson have collaborated on a

    number of projects for over twenty years. Their

    works have been exhibited nationally and

    overseas, most recently Last Exile (2011), a

    large-scale installation at the Wollongong City

    Gallery was supported by an Australia Council

    for the Arts New Work Established grant.
