John Abery: Do you Remember? An exhibition of childhood memory

John Abery: Do you Remember? An exhibition of childhood memory

from August 04, 2017 @ 11:00 AM until September 25, 2017 @ 5:00 PM
Cowwarr Art Space

In this sculpture exhibition, John explores the nostalgia of childhood memories.  He deliberately created the works to be oversized, creating a feeling of wonder and excitement recreating the emotion a child would feel in the presence of a new toy.  He hopes these works will evoke a playful memory for everyone who sees them.

John Abery, the sculptor, is exploring and effectively recreating a childhood memory in his adult years.  He has deliberately created the sculptures to be large and oversized to emulate the excitement and overwhelming sensation that a child would feel in the presence of a new exciting object.

This collection of sculptures is designed to slow down the viewer, to look at things that we may take for granted but that a child would simply be in awe of.  This is emphasized by the sculpture called The Trinket Box.

“I have deliberately filled it with trinkets that may seem monotonous or subjectively boring.  However these objects are approached through the eyes of a child, my inner child and may also relate to the viewer’s inner child as well.” said the sculptor John
Abery.

“Even the nostalgia of the bowl of marbles that would sit on Grandma’s coffee table and the excitement that would bring to a child” said John Abery.

The sculptor has constructed these objects out of wood, for obvious links to the past of handmade wooden toys that people will remember from days gone by but also because it is a medium that the artist loves to work with and has great respect for.

Nurse, bank clerk, farmer, sports master, journalist, artist, activist – encounter seven ordinary Australians and hear their extraordinary stories of war in this moving exhibition tracing WWI through personal accounts.

Between 2015 to 2017 this landmark exhibition will appear at the State Library and 12 public libraries throughout Victoria.

Explore many perspectives on WWI, from private correspondence with anxious families and friends back home, to powerful outcries seeking to sway public opinion about the war effort.  Hear female perspectives on the horrors from the frontlines, and see everyday life as a soldier captured on camera.  Long before Facebook posts and Skype calls, Australians serving during WWI shared their experiences through letters, diaries and photographs sent to loved ones.  Watch, listen to and feel the power of those words brought to life through film and audio presentations.
