In what some are calling ‘A transparent attempt to sell out the edition.’, Max Piantoni is remounting his 2011 work ‘The Descent of the Dodo: Part One’ at the Counihan Gallery in the Brunswick Town Hall.
This is not new work. This is certainly not The Descent of the Dodo: Part Two. Which is fast shaping up to be the Duke Nukem Forever of the Melbourne art scene. The prints aren’t different sizes… (for editions sake!) and Max has resisted all urges to ‘George Lucas the crap out of them’. They are, however, shiny new prints and Max has found a great Leonardo da Vinci quote to introduce the work.
Also, unlike the last dodo show, this one couldn’t be easier to find!
The work will be presented as part of ‘First and Last’ a stunning show that ruminates on life, progress, death and other stuff featuring Max’s fellow Brunswick Arts comittee members. Jenna Corcoran, Alister Karl, Carmen Reid, Adele Smith, Ive Sorocuk, and John Stevens.
Max says: “If you missed the work last time because you were in Europe, or if you’d like some free wine - or if you’re a good friend of mine - I’ll see you there!”
