As part of KINGS Artist Run’s Limitless City: Abstraction, Materiality and Authenticity, we are proud to present As If.

As if, curated by Dr Peter Hill (Aus/Sco) and Adeline Kueh (Singapore), brings together eleven International and Australian artists whose work explores fictive narratives through painting, sculpture, video, and installation.

These range from Turner Prize finalist Nathan Coley’s collaboration with Cate Blanchett – a meditation on the laneways and dark alleys of Melbourne and Glasgow – to Melbourne painter Grant Hill’s images of suburbia that look “as if” they are something else.

Several contemporary artists have, in recent years, investigated the animal and plant kingdoms, but few so poetically as the Singapore-based Institute of Critical Zoologists, represented in “As if” by a complex artists book.

This is a celebration of the strange forking paths that confront our imaginations in the garden of Superfictions. Enjoy!

CONVERSATION: Join us for an informal discussion and artist talk on Thursday 16 October, 6pm. As part of Abstraction, Materiality and Authenticity KINGS Artist Run will be hosting after work drinks and dialogue on the last Thursday of each of the curated exhibitions in this series.

Kings Artist Run proudly presents Superfictions 2: As If as part of our 2014 Limitless City Festival of Abstraction, Materiality and Authenticity.
