Aleks Danko, Pointless

 

Aleks Danko's prolific career spans over 30 years, working in a range of media from installation and performance art to public commissions. The past decade has seen Danko create a body of work which suggests, discusses, & interrogates the social, political & cultural landscape of Australia.

For Danko's exhibition here at Sutton Gallery this October, his considered response to culture and language combine in an installation which confronts the viewer with both humour and irony.
Centered around the theme of "pointless" Danko fills the gallery space with varied materials and devices ranging from table tennis paddles, to the alphabet presented as a cheeky riddle.

A key work in the installation is a new collaborative project with Melbourne Sound Artist, Dean Linguey. It is an automatic/performative/sonic piece titled PHHHHHHHIT, which will continually bring the viewer back to the central question of the exhibition ... WHAT IS, THE POINT?
