Projects presents ambitious large-scale works and spatial interventions that challenge the confines of a tradition art fair booth.

Peter Adsett, Wall Hang, 2016

Wall hang is a site-specific installation by New Zealand-born artist Peter Adsett, which presents the viewer with a playful meditation on the complicity between abstract painting and architecture. Whilst decorative in its form, Wall hang aims to rejoin shapes and materials within the space in a way that is reminiscent of trompe l’oeil fresco painting.

Thomas Canto, Suspended Landscape, 2016

Suspended Landscape is a site-specific installation that synthesizes Canto’s signature graffiti style with radical Constructivism and the kinetic effects of Op Art.

Henry Hussey, Locking Horns (Part Of The Series Of Works Reliquaries), 2015

This installation is the conclusion of a body of work which Hussey began in 2013,which draws inspiration from Brugel’s epic narrative based paintings and centers on taking control of circumstances that have shaped Hussey’s life.

Locust Jones, Back To The Dark Ages, 2015/16

An ambitious, large scale hanging scroll, the piece investigates issues of contemporary politics through large-scale panoramic sheets of paper with text-based imagery and expressive, scrawled drawings furthering his exploration of the themes in his solo show ‘Screenshots’ at Dominik Mersch Gallery (Sydney) in 2015.
