Los Angeles based Bonnie Lane returns to her hometown of Melbourne for a new solo exhibition.

Monsters will be a series of video sculptures that splice together segments of the human body to form bizarre creatures. These monstrous beings, with their fragmented and contorted flesh, are manifestations of the darker parts of our subconscious, our private desires and most secret thoughts.

From their starting point as simple paper collages, Lane has developed these monsters into almost living creatures, video sculptures that will make the audience overly aware of their own body as they navigate the exhibition and interact with these strange yet seductive beings.

This exhibition will follow on from the success of Lane’s 2012 solo exhibition
Make Believe (Anna Pappas Gallery). The key work from this exhibition was a kaleidoscopic video that continually morphed between distinguishable forms of young girls dancing to abstract patterns formed by the girl’s costumes. Created over several artist residencies in America, the video explores the subjected roles of childhood and adulthood and the tumultuous transition between the two.

Exhibition opens: 6pm Friday 14 March 2014
Exhibition closes: 26 April 2014
Location: Anna Pappas Gallery, 2-4 Carlton Street, Prahran VIC 3181
Contact: 03 9521 7300
