EXHIBITION: ARMANDO CHANT


Black Eye Gallery is pleased to announce the August 2017 exhibition
Liminal by Armando Chant

Liminal builds an interest with the potential for engagement that exists with the relationship between imagery and objects that sit within an in-between state of emergence and realisation.


This series proposes an encounter with the liminal image in construction, where there is an exploration and interaction with the blurred boundaries between the real and imaginatively unreal, and images that are in a process of slow and gradual emergence.


Chant depicts an abstract landscape composed of marks and gestures that are indeterminate and indefinable, embodying both bodily contours and vast panoramic gestural landscapes.

“My practice aims to explore and open up potentials for the dressed body to be reframed or represented within an ephemeral and transient context across site and surface, and contribute to another way of experiencing image and body within the disciplines of both art and design.”
– Armando Chant, 2017
