Gary Anderson

10 September – 11 October 2013

Value Propositions
A performance by altered 1cent US coins

Gary Anderson, performative object #1 2013.

Gary Anderson works in the uneasy space between experience and interpretation using performative objects to probe the generative potentialities of paratactic oppositions, meta-temporal latencies and alteration of fragile, found or transient materials. For Mailbox this year he creates a series of installed object-performances on the mediation of value. The objects, moving and glimmering to attract attention, have covered themselves in layers of pure gold to project allure and desirability, and perform incessantly longing to be valued.

Gary Anderson is a Melbourne based artist currently completing a Masters of Contemporary Art at the Victorian College of the Arts.
