Michael Lindeman: An Awkward Dance

A presentation of paintings, drawings and sculpture that invert structures of power and authority.

Michael Lindeman’s An Awkward Dance is a complex exploration into his own identity. It’s a burrowing into the realm of institutional critique, and an exercise in bypassing culturally sanctioned principles.

An Awkward Dance is a presentation of paintings, drawings and sculpture that invert structures of power and authority with wit and sarcasm. Lindeman is compelled to make art that entertains himself, art that does something other than sitting on its arse in a gallery space. His conceptual practice calls for a dynamic engagement from the viewer by way of a shared experience.

The central installation of paintings titled, Implicit Memory System, highlights his disposition towards authority. Relying on an animated, satirical ‘Poo’ font, this collection of text paintings calls-out various individuals who possess an inflated sense of authority. Masking the implied stench, Lindeman has mounted a colourful grid sequence of air fresheners over the entire gallery wall – blanketing the exhibition space with a cocktail of subtle and fresh fragrances.

Opening: Friday 29 June, 6pm to 8pm.
