Chick and Cobi at Fehily Contemporary…

11 10 2015

By happy happenstance the Gang’s trip to Melbourne (Granny rehab) coincided with Chick and Cobi’s show, Ascent into Darkness: Culture, faith and ritual: from reverence to repulsion. (And we’re pleased to report that (conceptual aside) there was definitely none of the latter!) Great to see the jump across to the contemporary art scene – amps up the sophistication no end.

Very cool work and it’s fab to see a collaborative project from them; nothing like a bit of ying&yang to crank up the dynamism. Always, of course, with that signature deft subtlety…

The work was paired into 8 sets but for the purposes of close-up snaps we took them singly (apologies to Chick and Cobi for the separation.)

The artists

Cobi and Chick

The exhibition is accompanied by the poetic insights of friend and poet MG Michael, all bound together in a very schmick publication. Noice.

Chrissie came along, and loved it big time…

And we ran into Blanchie and Marcus (of course – assiduous opening attendees that they are!)…
