Danius Kesminas & Midori Mitamura

Thu 5th May, 2011 – Sat 23rd July, 2011
Monash University Museum of Art
900 Dandenong Road, Caulfield East

Danius Kesminas's politically inclined art projects may be the polar opposite of Midori Mitamura's Art and Breakfast installation, but they will be sharing the Monash University Museum of Art in May.

Australian artist Danius Kerminas will be working in collaboration with other talented minds to present three diverse projects comprising of art, music, performance, video, publishing, agit-prop and opera. Slave Pianos | Punkasila | Pipeline to Oblivion draws inspiration from Indonesia to Eastern Europe, to put together a myriad of sound and visuals.

At Art and Breakfast, visiting Japanese artist Midori Mitamura will be treating visitors as part of her installation, where she will then spend time in the exhibition space, creating and rearranging a series of small improvised installations each day. These temporary handmade installations reflect the transient nature of memory and emotional experience. This exhibition framework makes for an intimate exchange, whereby atmosphere, open-ended possible narratives and a kind of everyday mise-en-scene are built and shared between artist and visitor.
