Michal Glikson: The Australindopak Archive
Opening: September 6, 2017, 7pm
The artist will be present
Michal Glikson has been exploring peripatetic art practice with a focus on painting as a means of negotiating cross-cultural experience and the uncertainty of transitional life since 2006.
“I have long been fascinated with painting as a way of looking at the world, of reaching out to and connecting with others. My work springs from a deep curiosity about travel and its capacity for bringing me into the world, and placing me in proximity to its pressing issues and concerns.”
The Australindopak Archive is a trilogy of scroll paintings that chronicle immersive journeys in Australia, India and Pakistan between 2012 and 2015. The paintings allow a window into a lived experiences of peripatetic life filled with encounters with extra/ordinary people.
Under the auspices of the Australian Ambassador to Austria, H.E. Dr. Brendon Hammer
