© 2008

Rus Kitchin, our special guest artist for April, pulled together a vast body of reconstituted photographic and digital work which he used to wallpaper the large Vitrine space. Rus painted over the surface of the photo-wall in a graf style for which he first earned his rep on the local art scene. Installing two large televisions and four laptop computers, the imagery framing the back wall was then re-presented in digital looping formats while the remnants of the work were left aesthetically randomised across the floorboards. A wildly expressive show from one of Melbourne's hottest young artists, End of the Beginning is one of our favourite Vitrine shows.
