Early retirement

Zac St. Clair

8 May 2015–30 May 2015
Opening 12.00am 1 Jan 1970

Early retirement will serve as a light-hearted, humorous yet pessimistic form of self-mockery. To retire at such a young age acts as an admission of redundancy. This admission of redundancy or belief of a self-insufficiency will provide me with an opportunity to do “the opposite” by going against intuition and to procrastinate and delay the doing of my “important work” or “real practice”. Intuition has played a big part in both the creation and the installation process of my previous work. By participating in leisurely painting and drawing tutorials that require you to follow a step by step guide I’m hoping to avoid tendency follow my intuition aesthetic values, to hopefully uncover a non-intentional, unknowing, genuine dumbness within my work.
