Serious Matter

WHEN : 31st March 6:00 -8:00pm

Alex Cuffe is a multi-disciplinary artist who works across sculpture, installation and experimental sound. In his practice Cuffe approaches the materiality of objects in relation to convoluted theories drawn from science, geometry, astrology, kinetics and acoustics. His works utilize the aesthetics of the ‘backyard inventor’ where lo-fi materials and natural matter coalesce, transformed through new media technologies. For his exhibition Serious Matter at Boxcopy Cuffe’s objects are further informed by ideas of personal narrative, the monument and material residue, operating as a guileless attempt to navigate the complexities of the universe with the material remnants found in childhood.

Since completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Queensland College of Art Cuffe has completed two studio residencies, including one at NK in Berlin. He has held multiple solo and group shows and has received several awards including The Jeremy Hynes Award in 2011. In 2012 he will be featured in Melbourne’s reputable Next Wave Festival and will undertake an Aisalink Residency in Indonesia.

Exhibition Dates : 31 March – 28 April
