Wincing wind-chime, repugnant fold-out breath is a presentation by George Egerton-Warburton considering symptom as occupation. On otherwise unoccupied days, the artist has adopted the practice of making a single, standardised small bed. These beds will be presented alongside a series of kinetic sculptures. The installation is complemented by two architectural interventions, and borrows its layout from a WW2 era infirmary.

Recent solo exhibitions by George Egerton-Warburton include: Administration is just Oulipian poetry, PICA, Perth, 2014; Steaming ties, Artspace, Auckland, 2013; Dog, Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne, 2013. Group exhibitions of note include: New 15, ACCA, Melbourne, 2015; Plagiarist of My Unconscious Mind!, Château Shatto, Los Angeles, 2015; Art as a verb, MUMA, Melbourne, curated by Charlotte Day & Patrice Sharkey, 2014.

The artist would like to acknowledge that this event will take place on stolen land traditionally owned by the
Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. Sovereignty has never been ceded.
