Opening: Friday 7 February, 6-8pm

In parallel with their solo practices, Lewis Fidock and Joshua Petherick have been working in collaboration intermittently since 2016. Working predominantly in sculpture, the artists engage strategies of artifice, to consider and obfuscate the relationship between objects and time, archaeology and preservation, history and future. Presenting such objects within the environment of the gallery, Fidock and Petherick offer propositions and speculations that entangle the real world with the realm of alternative narratives for how objects might reflect, challenge or disrupt histories and systems and hierarchies of cultural and economic value attribution.

Selected recent collaborative exhibitions include: U, Sydney, Sydney (2019); and A Cut From Occam’s Razor, Punk Café, Melbourne (2016); Selected recent collaborative projects in group exhibitions include: Auto Body Works, Arts Project Australia, Melbourne (2018); Unreal City, Firstdraft, Sydney (2018); We Remember It For You Wholesale (Part Two), Minerva, Sydney (2017); and Future Eaters, Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne (2017).
