The Garden of Forking Paths

Having launched in March of this year, Buxton Contemporary is the newest gallery on Melbourne's art-plenty block and it's pulling no punches when it comes to compelling shows. The first in an exciting annual series of international exhibitions, The Garden of Forking Paths sees Buxton Contemporary unite the distinctive practices of Melbourne-based artist Mira Gojak and Tokyo's very own Takehito Koganezawa.

Curated by Melissa Keys and Shihoko Iida, the exhibition features large scale presentations and provocative works which highlight the parallels and contrasting elements between the two art practices. Like forking paths, there are both moments of connection and divergence between the artists' work. Taking place across both floors of the gallery, the show incorporates work from across Gojak's 20-year career, including drawing, sculpture, installation and photographs, with performative video drawings, improvisational works and paper creations by her Japanese contemporary Koganezawa.

Located within the University of Melbourne's Victorian College of the Arts at the Southbank arts precinct, The Garden of Forking Paths is on display from Wednesday, November 7 until Sunday, February 17, 2019. Buxton Contemporary is open Wednesday to Sunday, 11am–5pm (Thursday until 8pm) and entry is free.
