Electric Affinity: Jess Johnson/Tina Havelock Stevens

Curated by Abigail Moncrieff

Opening night: Wednesday 25th February 6-8PM

Exhibition continues until 8th March 2015.

Electric Affinity pairs two works by artists Jess Johnson and Tina Havelock Stevens. The sonic and psychic vibration between these disparate works creates a temporary space of encounter, an experimental coming together leading to unpredictable results. Displayed at Alaska Projects, the raw setting of these works invites questions about the perception of these works and the relationship between space, the audience and the artworks.

Unhinged from time and place, Jess Johnson’s immersive animation installation Mnemonic Pulse propels us through a first-person viewpoint into an eerie, arcane and seductive parallel universe. This animation will be accompanied by a pair of site-specific wall paintings. Tina Havelock-Stevens's video White Drummer Ghost Class documents a drumming performance in an abandoned and desolate place. Her improvised riff sets off a psychic explosion, rendered with a punk aesthetic that draws the viewer through the anxieties and exultations of spatial and social interaction.

Jess Johnson is represented by Darren Knight Gallery, Sydney; Ivan Anthony Gallery, New Zealand
