Raging voyeur Larry Clark’s set up a pop-up shop at LA bookshop Ooga Booga where he’s selling unique 5 x 7 photographs (mostly developed in local pharmacies) for $100 a pop.  He says; “All the kids that come to my shows in thousands and could never afford 10 to 15 thousand dollars for a print … this is a pay back to all the skate rats and collectors who would like a souvenir so I can die happy.”  The shop runs until February 4th.

New Zealand artist Rohan Wealleans creates paintings and sculptures comprised of multitudinous layers of house paint that are then incised to reveal the multi-coloured excavations beneath.  The resulting paint chips generated by this process often become art objects in their own right.  For Mailbox, they are presented as specimen-like curiosities, and as body adornments in photographs featuring Wealleans-styled naked alien babes.  Part ‘geologist’, part voyeur, Wealleans always inhabits multiple guises.

Curated by Serena Bentley.

Rohan Wealleans is represented by Ivan Anthony Gallery, Auckland; Hamish McKay Gallery, Wellington and Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Sydney.

MAILBOX is an Artist Run Initiative 141-143 Flinders Lane Melbourne, VIC 3000 AUSTRALIA
