Last year in July 2012, Abdul Abdullah, Casey Ayers and Nathan Beard, exhibited their group show 'Artefacts From The Greater Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere' in Artereal's main gallery.
This year from January 18th - February 10th 2013, the three Perth-based artists have exhibited a new show, Interregna, at Moana Project Space, a new artist-run contemporary art gallery in Perth's CBD. Featuring new works from each artist, including painting, sculpture, installation and video, this show is the first collaboration between the trio since the Greater Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere.
"Interregna – a word that signifies a gap in continuity, typically designated to the interim period between shifting reigns of government.
Each artist documents the construction of personal identity as inflected by political and societal contexts. Whether exploring closeted or repressed violence, racial subtexts, or taboo sexual deviancies, each artist employs text and the corporeal form to draw masked or subconscious tensions to the surface, dealing with their chosen subjects with an almost devotional sincerity." - Moana Project Space
