A new exhibition focusing on the work of architect and artist UNSW Art & Design Professor Richard Goodwin, is set to open at Penrith Regional Gallery.
The exhibition brings together a selection of projects and works, representing some of Goodwin’s most significant artistic achievements produced over a period spanning 25 years from his Ulysses, Drone Dorje, Mystic Alien, Parasite, and Porosity series.
Goodwin’s practice has long examined the relationship between architecture and technology, habitable and inhabitable spaces, and machines and the human form. Goodwin describes his gallery practice as “the permeable edge that exists between public and private spaces and scale of the city”.
In the Main Penrith Gallery space, large scale drawings will be positioned alongside ‘architectures’ of various sizes, including says Goodwin “alien machine constructions, carapace and exoskeleton, all of snarling power and promising dangerous velocity”.
In the Penrith Lounge Room Gallery space, Goodwin’s real and imagined architectural models will be displayed. Audiences will see Goodwin-classics of exploding bikes and deconstructed cars that challenge conventional thinking about urban environments.
