Hamishi recently worked with Blackartprojects to open his solo show titled ‘Ableit Tho’. A great collection of work, and an even greater installation that included an oversized t-shirt which had a long list of customer service Twitter replies from large corporations and brands. Great to see a new body of work from the Melbourne based artist.
“A hard drive fails in an instant and with it goes a collection of memories. The somewhat volatile medium of the digital is expressed as irrecoverable loss and leads to an obvious lack of trust. Without trust one enters into a tenuous relationship. There is an anxiety inherent to the impending possibility of a sudden end. Even now I am scared, the last time I backed up my laptop was months ago.”
