Without Ending presents experimental works by nine diverse and multicultural contemporary artists: Siri Hayes, Aaron Martin, Kelie Wells, Youjia Lu, Corinna Berndt, Madeline Bishop, Leela Schauble, Jimmy Langer, and Akihiro Okumura.

These artists experiment and investigate with our contemporary narrative within the spaces they move through. Physically and metaphorically, each work will display a narrative the artist has mentally projected, experienced or remembered. Investigating a narrative for an urban, natural, or metaphysical space, Without Ending moves from interior to exterior, dark to light, physically to metaphysically, and then beyond the frame into the immediacy of the viewer.

These works do not fall back on complete stories, their narrative structure are non-linear or logical but deal with the space and time in a renewed casual manner. Often viewers must create temporal and causal structures of their own within the exhibition space, therefore assuming the role of the artist.

  • Corinna Berndt is a Melbourne based visual artist working mostly in digital media. She recently completed a Master of Fine Arts at the Victorian College of the Arts for which she was presented with a Fiona Myer Award. Berndt has exhibited her work at Anna Papas Gallery, Hawthorn Town Hall Gallery, West Space, Seventh Gallery and C3 Contemporary Art Space. Her work was recently featured as part of MCA ARTBAR at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia in Sydney. –
  • Youjia Lu is a Melbourne-based artist who is currently undertaking her PhD at VCA University of Melbourne. Lu’s current research explores how to evoke an immediate experience of an indeterminate self through digital video art practice. Her ongoing artistic experiments test video’s capacity to digitally manipulate time, create illusory superimposed images and induce strobe effect in projection space. Drawing upon psychoanalytic theories of what precedes the formation of the ego and metaphysical conceptions of time and consciousness, Lu examines different artistic strategies for imaging the indeterminate condition of the self.
