STATION GALLERY

Exhibitions: Jason Phu & Sean Peoples

Jason Phu’s first solo exhibition at STATION, I was born under a stone mountain, presents a suite of new works derived from a playful stream of consciousness that navigates personal and historical experiences of cultural dislocation. 

The artist’s new suite of works are derived from a playful stream of consciousness that imagines living under a moun- tain for 100,000 years, sitting in the darkness and suckling, ‘on the roots of great trees that would find their way under the mountain’. In his exhibition, Jason re-imagines poetic observations of every day vernacular and cultural identity to traverse contemporary and historical traditions.

Sean Peoples’ exhibition, Cubism Surrealism Tourism, draws on antipodean notions, both real and imagined, to juxtapose Australian politics, science fiction, the universe and technology. 

Sean Peoples is a multidisciplinary artist with an interest in imitation, appropriation and collage. Informed by extensive research, his work seeks to integrate and parallel disparate ideas and concerns, often employing networks and models as a visual device.

Established in 2011 in Melbourne, Australia, and newly opened in Potts Point, Sydney in 2019, STATION has an interest in engaging exciting and rigorous cross-disciplinary contemporary practices. We are dedicated to presenting a diverse, conceptually driven exhibition program, with the aim of fostering rigorous, critically engaged contemporary art practices. STATION represents a broad stable of established and emerging Australian and international artists. Providing significant exhibitions from represented artists, our program is also punctuated by solo and curated group exhibitions that explore the works of artists outside of the gallery fold, allowing flexibility within an expanding contemporary discourse.
