CHRISTOPHER DAY
AFTER THE BREADCRUMBS

SAT 18 APRIL UNTIL SAT 2 MAY 2009

'When the children woke in the dark night they found that the trail of crumbs had been eaten by the forest and they headed off in search of their lost home. They came upon a sugar-coated house. They were starving kids, abandoned to the wilds, and here was an edible dream, the answer to their prayers. And here was a mother figure welcoming them, luring them in.

Randomness can be terrifying. Surfaces can lie and melt away.

The unfamiliar resides in the dusty corners of the known, the trimmed comforting edges of the real world.

Beware: Starving eyes can't see beyond sugar-coated walls.

Pebbles, breadcrumbs, Ariadne's thread. The innocuous pot plant in the corner. The alluring peach held by a mysterious figure. All the signs pointing the way are pointless. Never trust the obvious. Photographs are just surfaces after all. The superficial once ruled and now can't sing for shit. The promised land is a furphy. Put your trust in the everyday at your peril. It might turn up one day abandoned in a field, burnt out and flipped over.

The true path can no longer be depended on.'*
*John Cipolla

Day's unique style of photography has featured in numerous publications including Photofile and Hijacked. He held his first solo exhibition, A Little Boob, at Victoria Park Gallery in 2008. Group exhibitions include Wipe The Shit Off Your Shoes Before Entering, The Projects, Melbourne, 2008; Neverness Part I, Right Angle Studios, Melbourne and Black & Blue Gallery, Sydney, 2008; Everything Forever, Palm Court Gallery, Perth, 2007; White & Black, Nellie Castan Gallery, Melbourne, 2002 and 1000 Words, Meat Market, Melbourne, 1998.

After the Breadcrumbs will present a major new body of work from Christopher Day. The exhibition will travel to Black & Blue Gallery, Sydney, in May this year.
