Lachlan Anthony’s latest exhibition Geometric Asylum is coming to Metro Arts’ Gallery marking his first solo show in Brisbane
The Melbourne-based artist explores themes of power, violence and control in his artistic practice. Anthony’s sculptures and installations draw on spatial, economic and political theory, critiquing the structure and effect of neoliberalism. Geometric Asylum will feature automated kinetic systems, deterrent sculptural pieces and hostile architecture that guide the visitor’s journey through the space. It will include a rotating sculptural system including an outstretched beam that moves at the speed of the second hand of a clock.
The exhibition opens Wednesday, July 13 and closes on Saturday July 30. During this time, visitors have the opportunity to meet Anthony and speak to him about his work after his artist talk in the gallery.
