  • AGO Exhibition Analysis

    contrast of one side with colour and the other with black and white draws the viewer towards it. Another significant work featured in the exhibition is Claes Oldenburg’s 1962 floor burger sculpture. It was the only artwork shown on the floor of the space, as it is 1.32 meters by 2.13 diameters in size. The floor burger is overwhelming in size as it a something that is usually smaller compared to humans who eat it, which is what I think the artist is telling us with this work. The canvas is filled with foam rubber and cardboard boxes, meanwhile the painted used were latex and Liquitex. Next to the Elvis I and II, Oldenburg’s work captures the viewers’ attention through the presentation of a large food object being on the ground. Lastly, Jim Dine’s 1962 Black Bathroom #2 painting is a distinctive work that brings 3d objects with a 2d canvas. Dine’s artwork consists of a white china basin sink attached to a white canvas and around the white sink is black oil paint layered on the canvas. Below is the title of the work written by the artist himself. The work is probably the most interesting out of the collection and fits in with the theme of using everyday object in art are common to pop art of the 1960s. The 3 artworks by different artist in the same 60s pop art movement offer a glance at the themes of the exhibition. These works are being shown together because they challenge the status quo of fine art and what is it to bring mass media culture to a space like this.…

I also have to sleep against the wall so I know nothing can creep up behind me. In a sense…
