Project Description

CAMILLE SERISIER AND YANNICK BLATTNER FEATURED IN ‘THE STEVEN BRADBURY MEMORIAL INVITATIONAL’

SGAR artists CAMILLE SERISIER and YANNICK BLATTNER have new work featured in The Steven Bradbury Memorial Invitational opening at The Laundry Artspace 6pm Friday, July 1. The exhibition explores an intersection of art and sport across the practices of nine Brisbane artists.

The curator Alexander Kucharski has written some words on the exhibition:

“Disqualifications and fortuitous crashes paved the way for Australia’s first Winter Olympics gold medallist, Steven Bradbury. Contemporary art, as a rank outsider to sport itself in the conscious of the wider public, Bradburys its way through the Australian cultural landscape, beset by the likes of Sportsbet ads that cry “that’s not art” at abstract sculpture and affirm “this is” at the Multibet function of its new app.

Placed as it is at the end of our news broadcasts, the back of the newspaper, and sometimes across the front page with a provincialistic headline, sport can be common ground for artists whose work addresses a variety of conceptual frameworks. At this Invitational, sport is an object, a cultural institution, a psychologist, an aspiration, a pastime, a history, a childhood, and a way of life. Above all, it is fun. The selected artists will share their reflections on these themes.” (Alexander¬†Kucharsk, 2016)

Exhibiting artists include: Yannick Blattner, Kristian Fracchia, Luke Kidd, Zoe Knight, Alex McGovern, Paralell Park(Holly Bates and Tayla Haggarty), Jack Rodgers and Camille Serisier.
