____________19.06.17 Lara Merrett at Installation Contemporary 2017
Lara Merrett has been selected as one of 15 artists for Installation Contemporary 2017. Part of the Sydney Contemporary 2017 program and curated by the MCA’s Chief Curator, Rachel Kent and assistant curator Megan Robson, Installation Contemporary presents a range of large-scale site-specific artworks that respond to the unique space of Sydney’s Carriageworks.
Merrett will present a new three-dimensional painting installation, Time After Time (Compendium of Gestures) 2017, which interrogates the relationship between painting and its surrounding architecture. Using drop sheets and a variety of paint applications, Merrett will work in-situ to create an immersive environment of colour as a response to the physicality of the Carriageworks space and surrounding artworks.
