James Angus | Papier Mâché for Beginners

City: Fremantle
Time: Jun 7th, 2019 - 6:30pm - Jul 21st, 2019 - 5:00pm Opening Friday, 7 June, 6:30pm Running Sat 08 Jun 2019 — Sun 21 Jul 2019 | 10:00am — 5:00pm

This exhibition, at the Fremantle Arts Centre from 7 June to 21 July, is the first solo presentation of sculptures by James Angus in WA in over a decade.

As the title suggests, the objects in this series are the result of several years of experimentation, focused exclusively on paper-based media. This recent work is Angus’ explicitly handmade response to both the influence of digital manufacturing and the tradition of monumental sculpture.

Papier Mâché for Beginners will be accompanied by a book published by the Surf Street Press.

James Angus was born in Perth in 1970 and has held twenty solo exhibitions at galleries in Australia, the United States and France. In 2006 his work was the subject of a major touring exhibition organised by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. He currently lives and works in Berkeley, California.
