A Catalogue of Gods
Opening Thursday September 20th, 6-9pm
Vs. Gallery is excited to present a new solo exhibition by the renowned Australian pop-artist Stephen Killick.
‘A Catalogue of Gods’ re-interprets the symbols and icons of our mediated world into a bold and unique vision that maps the nuances of our dystopian landscape.
The exhibition as Killick explains, “is an eyes and ears witness account of merely being here. As we enter the virtual world, as robots enter the workforce, as drones assimilate into our lives either as agents of surveillance, as personal assistants or tools for progress .. these works are evidence of change.”
Having exhibited and had residencies throughout Australia and overseas since 1968, Stephen Killick’s CV reads as a who’s who of Australian art. His work is in the collection of NGV, MOCA, AGNSW, QAG, and the National Gallery in Canberra. His commissioned sculpture work can be seen at the Brisbane International Airport, Heide park, Port Macquarie Library and notably at the Australian Pavillion at World Expo 88.
His long time connection to Melbourne through numerous past exhibitions, studying at NGV art school, and local sculptural installations - makes ‘A Catalogue of Gods’ a refreshing home-coming for the artist and for us to celebrate his sublime and often satirical social commentary.
