Marcel Feillafe

Middle Gallery
3 Jun 2017–24 Jun 2017
Opening

I’m on Naoshima Japan. It’s raining and cold. I’m staying in a guest house and don’t want to leave the cosy room, but there are so many things to discover. I see five of Monet’s Water Lilies paintings housed in the purpose-built space, at the beautiful Chichu Museum of Art. Before I enter I’m asked to take my shoes off and put slippers on. This action makes me conscious of the other people and their experience, as well as my presence. These five paintings are more than windows onto a well-manicured early 20th century garden. They are active; they pull you into abstract worlds of colour, and push you back to investigate the relationships these vibrant marks make as a whole.

Feillafés work deals with concepts such as liminality and ontology as a location or origin of creation.  His new work will investigate the world of the macro and micro, exploring space, geometry, line, colour and repetition.

 

  • Feillafés practice deals with concepts such as liminality and ontology. His work can be described as experimental, often the remains or result of a process. The trace of the artist’s hand in Feillafe’s work creates a performative and uncanny presence. Marcel Feillafe is a Melbourne based artist whose practice spans installation, sound, drawing and photography. Feillafe completed a Master of Contemporary Art in 2015 at the Victorian College of the Arts.
