Stick instincts will take up a studio in the installation space of window99 for the duration of April as part of Benjamin Woods’ Project for the Rights of Matter.
In his statement on Honesty, Wood’s notes, ‘this ongoing project tries to give matter a chance to be in-itself by attributing matter rights. It becomes problematic for a materiality-based practice when we notice matter could be deceiving us.’
Benjamin Woods works across action, documentation, writing, publication-making and process-based platforms. All of his research takes place within an expandable field of sculpture, concerned with matter, the body, and time. Benjamin is currently undertaking masters of research at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne.
During the opening night Kiera Brew Kurec will perform her two-hour durational piece, asking the audience to Give Me a Shot in a game of Russian roulette involving vodka and a cap gun.
Kiera Brew Kurec has performed her works in numerous galleries across Melbourne and Berlin and has just completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts, Honours at Victorian College of the Arts.
Project for the Rights of Matter opens at window99 alongside Give Me a Shot at Rollerdoor Performance Space on Saturday the 9th of April from 6pm. The exhibition runs till the 7th of May. Window 99 is located at 99 Brunswick St, Fitzroy, one block North of Gertrude St.
