Conventicle (2019)

"Conventicle" was Chris Orr's second exhibition, held at fortyfivedownstairs, 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, 21 May to Sat 1 June 2019. See walk-thru video here.

"Conventicle" is an unorthodox assemblage of Renaissance and Victorian engravings blanketed in everyday detritus, modern ephemera and classical stencils. A diet of ever-changing colour, with velvet hues, fluorescent outbursts and unexpected complexions. Old soft drink cans, disregarded packaging and discarded motherboards are expertly re-assembled in an exciting declamatory recitation of social archaeology.
