All the better to see you with: Fairy tales transformed

Ian Potter Museum of Art at the University of Melbourne

Curator: Samantha Comte

“All the better to see you with: Fairy tales transformed”, the Ian Potter Museum of Art’s 2017 upcoming show, traces the genre of the fairy tale, exploring its function in contemporary society. Artists featured in this exhibition are:

Broersen & Lukács, Kate Daw, Peter Ellis, Mirando Haz, Vivienne Shark Le Witt, Amanda Marburg, Tracey Moffatt, Polixeni Papapetrou Patricia Piccinini, Paula Rego, Lotte Reiniger, Allison Schulnik, Sally Smart, Kiki Smith, Kylie Stillman, Tale of Tales, Janaina Tschäpe, Miwa Yanagi, Kara Walker and Zilverster (Goodwin & Hanenbergh).

The exhibition presents contemporary art work alongside a selection of key historical fairy tale books that provide re-interpretations of the classic fairy tales for a 21st-century context, including Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel and The Little Mermaid. Featuring international and Australian artists, All the better to see you with explores artists’ use of the fairy tale to express social concerns and anxieties surrounding issues such as the abuse of power, injustice and exploitation.

Fairy tales can comfort and entertain us; they can divert, educate and help shape our sense of the world; they articulate desires and dilemmas, nurture imagination and encapsulate good and evil. All the better to see you withinvites us to delve into this shadowy world of ancient stories through the eyes of a diverse range of artists and art works.This major summer exhibition is presented across all three levels of the museum and is accompanied by a catalogue and public and education programs.

This exhibition has been generously supported by Naomi Milgrom AO and the Consultate General of the United States, Melbourne.

MMFA Announces Release of Allison Schulnik ” The Centaurette Bronzes” Today

IMG_3500

Allison Schulnik, Centaurette, 2017; cast bronze on unique stone base; Unique work from a series of eight 29″ H x 8″ x 20″ overall (19″ H  x 20″ x 5″ bronze, attached to base 10″ H x 13″ x 8″)

Mark Moore Fine Art introduces first cast bronze works by artist Allison Schulnik from her “Hoof” Series of paintings and sculpture from 2016-2017. 

Expanding on her language that traditionally highlights misfits, outcasts, and the misunderstood – Schulnik introduces a wild new cast of mythological creatures replete with centaurettes, unicorns, and otherworldly outsiders in various stages of liberation. Continuing her exploration of selfhood through diverse and rich allegories, her new subjects radiate gracefulness that is both vulnerable and stoic—a type of synthesis that is a hallmark in Schulnik’s work.

Not contented by cut and dry narratives that portray notions of empowerment, her characters are complex. Delving into the intricate web of sexuality, Schulnik takes a Henry Darger approach to Disney’s “Fantasia”- with centaurettes reimagining strength and femininity, as well as humanity. In order to create an honest portrait of contemporary liberation, she provides her mythic beings with fear, angst, sadness, and even weakness. Glorious unicorns of questionable gender are imbued with an aura of disheveled majesty — and a new type of hero emerges. Each protagonist is granted their individual physicality, strength, baggage, and personhood – as they also reflect the bewildering concepts of ego and identity. As fictional as these creatures may be, their personification of the untamed make us long for the best, unapologetic versions of our true selves.
