Foster & Berean | FATIGUE
Exhibition Dates | 8 February - 22 March 2020 | https://gertrude.org.au/exhibitions
Pat Foster & Jen Berean have been working collaboratively since 2001. Employing a diverse and lateral array of media and processes, their work unpicks the hidden systems that make up the sites and infrastructure that surrounds us. Within such thinking, contemporary architecture is deconstructed to such a degree that it is not solely concerned with the making of functional and utilisable space, but crucially, the determination of how, and by whom, such space is used, and for what purpose.
Selected recent collaborative exhibitions include: Loss Adjustment, TCB, Melbourne (2017); Evelyn Yard booth, NADA NY, Basketball City, New York (2016); Shadow of a Doubt, Evelyn Yard, London (2015); Nuove Tendenze, Neon Parc, Melbourne (2014); Ian Potter Sculpture Garden Commission, Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne (2013); Double Negatives, Centre For Contemporary Photography and Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne (2011); Can’t Stand Up For Falling Down, Murray White Room, Melbourne (2010); There is No Alternative, db projects, Sydney (2010); and The Problem with Stability, Pallas Contemporary Projects, Dublin (2010).
