Will Cox of Broadsheet Melbourne recommended Claire's show Luminous Numinous as one of the five must see shows over the ANZAC long weekend in Melbourne. Other shows listed were Andy Warhol/ Ai Wei Wei at NGV; Paul Yore at Neon Parc; Dancing Umbrellas and Making History: Angry Penguins at Heide MoMA; and Bill Henson's Oneiroi at the Hellenic Museum.
"Got some free time coming up? Here are five shows worth checking out in Melbourne right now. Some even share a gallery, or are next door to each other, so you don’t need to travel far.
These two colourful, brash shows open this Friday night in two galleries a stone’s throw from each other in Brunswick.
Paul Yore hasn’t had a solo show in Melbourne since 2013, when he became one of two artists accused (and acquitted) of peddling child pornography (see also Bill Henson). The new show is the result of a two-year pilgrimage to Europe, and invokes excess, pop culture, porn and cartoons. Expect large textile collages, as well as sound and video installations, all in the frantic, kindergarten-nightmare Yore style.
Up the road at Tinning Street, Claire Lefebvre’s work is a calmer experience: all silken lines and flowing, warm, velveteen splashes of colour made by pouring paint straight onto the canvas.
Paul Yore's solo exhibition runs at Neon Parc Brunswick until June 18.
Claire Lefebvre’s Luminous Numinous runs at Tinning Street Presents until May 1."
