Aleks Danko: MY FELLOW AUS-TRA-ALIENS
MY FELLOW AUS-TRA-ALIENS presented artworks spanning nearly five decades by Victorian-based artist Aleks Danko - from his earliest exhibitions in the late 1960s through to his recent large-scale installations.
Although Danko is versed in a range of disciplines, his practice remains firmly grounded within the world of objects. Using language as his starting point, he transforms sound, speech, rhymes, puns and repetitions into something more concrete. Akin to poetry, these text-based pieces are short and sharp, designed to be read aloud, vocalised and performed. In addition to many objects sourced from public collections, this major survey features significant works remade or reconfigured by the artist specifically for the exhibition.
Curated by Glenn Barkley and Lesley Harding. Presented in association with Heide Museum of Modern Art.
