Nicholas McGinnity: Props

Rubicon ARI, Melbourne, 2016.

“A grid depositing form into a structural hierarchy, conveying a fatalism or an impermanence to a fixed state. Relying on self-reflexive process the work engages with a certain material trajectory wherein elements from previous investigations are recycled founding new arrangements, existing between this cyclical procedure and each works assertion of this continuum experienced through sighting the installation. Approaching materials with the tactility of painting in mind, the elements that compose much of the work borrow from modernism or rather encompass material aesthetics associated with it, depositing them as props within a ‘structural hierarchy’ or having their presentation suggest an almost domestic function.” *
