Art Forum: George Egerton-Warburton
Location: Dechaineux Lecture Theatre, School of Creative Arts, University of Tasmania, Hunter Street, Hobart
Cooking the books is an exhibition by George Egerton-Warburton that considers the notion of “symptom as occupation.” On otherwise unoccupied days, the artist has adopted the practice of making a single, standardised small bed. As they are installed, they suggest there is a symptom in the exhibition space. Adjacent to the beds, a new series of sculptures will antagonise the proposition that language is inherently apologetic; as it seeks to explain. The sculptures rely on the idea that, in the mental process of interpretation, there is a moment of non-compliance, before we “obey” language.
