The LAB Gallery
Victoria artist Blair Taylor transforms the lab into an archive of his subconscious illustrating the eerie and absurd narratives that play out night after night in his dreams. His installation of models are “simplified to their barest elements” and “can also serve as a starting point for new associations and extrapolations by those who experience them.” Taylor, who is an artist and archivist, extracts meaning from the chaos of his dreams by imposing order and structure in the form of these pristine sculptures. He delights in how “something that was a hazy or barely remembered memory could be turned into a concrete physical presence.” The works in this exhibition are three dimensional representations of his archive of dreams that he has recorded and documented over many years.
