WHERE : Current Projects

Current Projects presents a solo exhibition of new works by Brisbane artist Anastasia Booth. Please join us for the exhibition opening on Wednesday 8 August, 6 – 8pm.

There is a small shiver working its way up my spine, as the cold metal slides against my skin.
Calf, thigh, crutch.
Secretly I’m aching for it.
Yeah baby it hurts, it aches real deep.

Ache Deep draws upon the aesthetic of medical fetishism, taking seemingly benign objects and working them into parodies of therapeutic implements. Yeah baby it hurts, it aches real deep. Playing with figuration and abstraction, depiction and omission, function and stasis. Yeah baby it hurts, it aches real deep. Folded leather has vaginal like creases while glass panes rest (and drip), a speculum stretching. Yeah baby it hurts, it aches real deep. Materials laid out in preparation for use. Because you know, yeah baby it hurts, it aches real deep.

Anastasia Booth is a Brisbane based visual artist. Working predominantly in sculpture and installation, Booth’s practice explores sexual fetish as an instrumental strategy, seeing it as a mode to work across different theoretical and material discourses, with a particular focus on the re-imaging of female desire.

Exhibition runs 8 August – 18 August / Open Wed-Fri 11-4:30, Sat 2-5
