La Trobe University Museum of Art: Tormentor

Chris Bond

5 Oct - 9 Dec 2016

Chris Bond has a solo exhibition at La Trobe University Museum of Art, which will run 5 October – 9 December. Curated by Michael Brennan, ‘Tormentor’ consists of fictional documentary material and sculptural works made in the body-mind of imagined Norwegian artist Tor Rasmussen (a temporary resident at Bond’s house in late 2014). The results are at once deceptive, self-deceptive, characterised and representational, and speak of discord and fracture.

Tormentor charts Bond’s relationship with Rasmussen (also known as Kraken), determining the value of embodying and performing multiple invented artistic identities within a practice, encouraging imbalance and enabling unlikely action.
