For the last show of 2013, New Low presents “Dual”, a meeting of works made collaboratively or in parallel by two local Melbourne artists Larissa Papamanos and Ruth O’Leary. 

OPENS THURSDAY 5TH DECEMBER 6PM 
At Goodtime Studios, Basement 746 Swanston St, Carlton, Melbourne VIC.

"DUAL; a double character or purpose: two complementary parts.
‘Dual’ explores the conjuncture between the nature of performance and the natural experience. This exhibition constructs a dialogue between these artists’ parallel and independent approaches to making.”

RUTH O’LEARY’s work combines performance, video, painting and drawing installation to examine female identity drawn out from the ground of normative social backgrounds. Her work employs ideas of persona and optical camouflage to engage the spectator in this politic. 

LARISSA PAPAMANOS’s practice engages with the polarity between the projected and the visceral natures of the self. Her work explores the sensations of reflexive vulnerability. By capturing these sensations in video and photographic work, she attempts to disrupt the seemingly conditioned exchanges in and around the visual landscape.

“Ctrl Paste” showcases a large group of artists working in what could be arguably described as the field of post-digital art, exhibiting work that is inspired and facilitated by social media.  These Internet aware artists are brought together by curator Joseph Flynn for the second instalment of his series of curatorial projects, the former being “Ctrl Copy” in 2012. The logically named succession, “Ctrl Paste” at New Low in 2013, is concerned with the varied impacts of digital media on artistic practice as well as the functions of control, copy and paste. 

Notions of appropriation and application have been fundamental aspects of art making; the copy and its translation have generally posed a critique to originality. In amidst an ever increasingly image saturated context, these website sensitive artists seem to be working in a spirit of addition. Like Douglas Heubler’s world “full of objects, more or less interesting”, their world is full of information, but they do seem to wish to add more. In fact, their works thrive on a potential for dynamism, or what David Joselit describes as “complex and multivalent” links. These artworks are proud hybrid copies, made available to be pasted, circulated and transformed through multifarious formats, in a process of what Hito Steyerl discusses as “copies in motion”. Emergent art practices such as those in “Ctrl Paste” suggest that the architecture of the network has dissolved definitions of production and distribution as disparate. Overall, the works express an awareness of an increased degree of collectivity.
