The Nylex clock silos in Cremorne have been put to good use housing 25 local and international artists over three levels for charity gallery event Untold Melbourne.
Curator Roland Henry has included works that he believes address the issues particularly affecting young people. The work Your Ad Here by Ben Frost, a human skeleton covered in black latex, is a comment on the issues surrounding eating disorders and body dysmorphia.
The Reach Foundation is the benefactor of the artwork’s proceeds once they go to auction. The gallery hopes to raise $1 million for the charity, which aims to give tools to young people to help them be the best they can be. Ticket sales also go to the Reach Foundation.
One artist not to miss is Sydney-based OneJessa. A giant pink fluffy chandelier hangs from the ceiling, unabashedly claiming the attention of the entire room.
Henry who originally hails from Bristol and now runs creative consultancy Studio Supply wanted to create an exhibition experience, not just a gallery, with a goal for positive change.
Due to its overwhelming popularity, Untold Melbourne has been extended for an extra weekend.
