Chris Bennie | Marnie Edmiston | Madeleine Stack

10 – 12 October 2014


Opening Event |  Friday 10 October 6pm

Artist in Conversation – Chris Bennie & Sarah Barron | Sunday 12 October 4pm


Continuing the Weekender series is Compulsion Loop, featuring new installation based works by artists Chris Bennie, Marnie Edmiston and Madeleine Stack, curated by Boxcopy’s 2014 curatorial intern Sarah Barron. The term, ‘compulsion loop’ is a recently coined word by the gaming industry to describe the intentionally addictive and repetitive model of pursuing goals for rewards. The pursuit for pleasure and fulfillment takes on new meanings, potentiality and ramifications in the context of current technology and society. The works in this exhibition consider the relationship between desire and disaster, the increasingly blurry line between public and private and western society’s insatiable drive for bigger, better and faster gratification.
