Ali McCann | Οι νεοί
8 February - 23 March 2019
Opening: Friday 8 February, 6-8pm
Οι νεοί, a Greek term meaning ‘the youth’, is a new body of photographic and sculptural work by Melbourne-based artist Ali McCann, expanding upon her exploration of experiential learning, visual perception, and the aesthetics of pedagogy.
Through the deconstruction, modification, and assembly of found artworks and teaching materials, these still-life tableaux explore Modernist pictorial strategies and 20th Century philosophies of education.
This accumulation of figures, geometric forms, and studio detritus functions as an imagined archive, the falsified evidence of the artistic processes of a fictitious group of adolescents.
Ali McCann lives and works in Melbourne. She completed a Master of Contemporary Art at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne, in 2017. She also holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne and a Graduate Diploma of Education, University of Melbourne.
Since the early 2000s she has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Melbourne, Sydney and regional Victoria. Recent solo exhibitions include Masks for Magicians, Caves, Melbourne (2018); Polytechnic, Tristian Koenig, Melbourne, (2018); An Introduction to Liminal Aesthetics, c3 contemporary art space, Melbourne (2017); and Throwing off the Hump, Kings Artist Run, Melbourne (2017). Her work has previously been shown at West Space, Melbourne; Bus Projects, Melbourne; TCB Art Inc., Melbourne; Chalk Horse, Sydney; and China Heights Gallery, Sydney. She currently teaches at the Northern College for the Arts and Technology, Melbourne.
