MOMENTUM - July at Factory 49

July 13 - July 22 , 2017

Barriers and driving forces guide a haptic encounter in Joe Wilson and Chanelle Collier’s fourth collaboration. Spatial and kinetic forms emphasise the authority of signs to instruct the position of persons or objects. The exhibition self-references its own event by taking on a quasi-theatrical tone and a parody of objects within and without the gallery space. Making use of the readymade in consideration of Painting, combined with automatic forms of labour, Momentum is an exhibition of new works that produce signals of position.

TRIBUTE - March at Wellington St Projects

Tribute is our third collaborative project and continues to develop a combined practice investigating the contingent dynamics of networks that are social and situational.

The works in this exhibition are all modelled after selected works from our own collection, mostly comprised of local artists with whose work and practice we are familiar. The works titled Tribute or After take the structure of their namesakes and are made to celebrate the work of our peers and influences. In each piece the artist’s signature hand is removed, leaving a blank chroma-key stand-in as a physical tribute to the work that came before it, offered as a gift to the original creator. 

We seek to mindfully engage the inherent authorisation and agency that comes of building a collection of art; and to navigate the shifts in identity-roles between collector, curator and artist. Through the presentation of stand-in works, and images of works in situ at home, this exhibition attempts to re-locate artworks set adrift, and to draw attention back to their originality while simultaneously expressing concepts and practice of our own making.

Exhibition continues
17 - 26 MARCH

UNIFORM - Nov 18 - Nov 20 , 2016
Opening Night: Thursday 17th, November, 6 - 8pm

An exhibition where viewers can change into Uniform overnight, leaving their personal clothing at the gallery until the next day. Participants become both the physical support for the work and the performer, layering the site of art, the role of the viewer, and the artwork itself. The show continues wherever Uniform is worn, extending the exhibition out into the world. The further the artwork moves beyond the context of gallery, the less fixed it is to its original identity.


Opening Hours
Friday - Sunday , 11am - 5pm

1/103 - 105 Oxford St, Darlinghurst, NSW, 2010

ART THAT DOES - June at Mils Gallery

MLS052: Joe Wilson & Chanelle Collier
June 8 - June 12 , 2016

Art that Does is an exhibition of “useful art for your Australian home” that develops colloquial and quixotic objects that engage with the perceived value of artistic labour and its contribution to society.

For Art that Does, the monochrome, as a signpost of the valorised fine art object, is playfully joined to the everyday domestic appliance. The outcome is an absurd attempt to demonstrate the oxymoronic results of a hypothetical “applied fine art” genre.

Joe Wilson and Chanelle Collier are a Sydney based art duo interested in contemporary responses to the representation of art through both institutional and digital structures. They have lived and practiced side by side for the last decade and Art that Does marks their first official solo exhibition.
