Metamorphosis: A Group Exhibition


A Group Exhibition exploring themes in Franz Kafka’s novel; Metamorphosis




Opening THIS Friday 2 October 6-9pm!

I’m very excited about The Tunnel’s up coming show, our third group exhibition as a collective! Metamorphosis is a fine art exhibition which is based on Franz Kafka’s novella of the same name.

Artists in the exhibition include:

Jamie Stanton
Chris Paul Godber
Jessica Ballantyne
Lauren Mele
Julie Ann
Genevieve Leavold
Mathew Tudor
Elena Dimitrova
Mervyn Diese
Robyn Litchfield

If you are in the area, please do come along and support the artists!:)

The story revolves around a dutiful man who, overnight, transforms into a giant bug. All ten artists involved have interpreted the theme a little differently, for some of us our usual art work has elements of the kinds of themes present in the book; isolation, transformation, decay, the body, the grotesque, surrealism, etc.

I am making collage/box art objects. They are more sculptural but include photography, textiles and sculptural elements.
The ‘ box houses’ I have made are inspired by the fact that much of the story takes place in the main character’s room where he is a kind of prisoner- in his body as well as the space.
My art objects or “Domestic Dissections” reveal something of the inner world of thoughts,emotions and identity. I will also be showing my painting; Legs that Go, which hasn’t been shown in a gallery setting yet, so that should be interesting!
