DAN MOYNIHAN
STILL SITTING STILL

SAT 31 JANUARY UNTIL SAT 21 FEBRUARY 2009

Moynihan will construct a giant iceberg in the main gallery space with a periscope installed in the front room from which to view the tip.

The relocation of this daunting mass that drifts with a peaceful uncertainty creates a visual demonstration of how impressions can be twisted or exaggerated to suit the moment. The selective process of recalling events is translated into a tangible presence by combining common materials with an alternative use of gallery space. The iceberg sits above and below the water. Exposing what is normally hidden the object acts as an altered amalgamation of stories retold on a grand scale. Giving leverage to their existence, parts are often intentionally left out or simply forgotten, remaining hidden.

Melbourne-based Moynihan completed a Bachelor of Creative Arts at Wollongong University in 2004. Solo exhibitions include Loose Cannon, Victoria Park Gallery, 2008 and One Small Step for Dan, TCB Art Inc, 2007. Selected group exhibitions include Big Trouble In Little China...Heights, China Heights Gallery, Sydney, 2008 and Hatched 05, Perth Institute for Contemporary Art, 2005.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australian Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
