BRENDAN VAN HEK SOLO PROJECT AT MOP IN SYDNEY

Brendan Van Hek is showcasing a new body of work, Shooting Stars, at MOP in Sydney, which opens just ahead of a major solo exhibition, LOST AT SEA, which will be presented at Venn Gallery next month.

Shooting Stars will see the leading Australian artist continue his exploitations of the illusionary and illuminating properties of neon – a medium for which he is renowned. The idea of hollow wishes and synthetic dreams are inherent in his site-specific installation Light Dreams – an immersive work that playfully employs a broad colour palette across a series of horizontal neon rods.


SHOOTING STARS EXHIBITION DETAILS:

EXHIBITION DATES: 20 August – 14 September 2014
GALLERY HOURS: Wednesday – Saturday, 11am – 5pm
MOP: 2/39 Abercrombie Street, Chippendale, Sydney, NSW 2008
