Barefoot Gallery serves as a platform for artists, musicians, poets, and filmmakers
The Colombo Gallery was begun by Barbara Sansoni in 1967 and had its home in Anderson Road in a building designed by Ulrik Plesner. The Colombo Gallery became Gallery 706 and that became the BAREFOOT GALLERY in the mid-nineties, which serves as a platform for artists, musicians, poets, and filmmakers in Colombo.
An exhibition of drawings by Mackenzie Nix from 4th August – 3rd September 2017.
Traversing the holy land of the Old Testament, contemporary Sri Lanka, and Post – WWII Berlin, THINGS FALL APART – the debut solo exhibition by Australian artist Mackenzie Nix – is a hypnotic focus on the anger and aggression which boils up into our everyday human lives through the thin veneer of our constructed social and moral world.
Mackenzie’s detailed ink drawings and digital prints call forward a space of domination, retribution, and asymmetrical justice through an intense rendering of colliding architectures and prerogatives; patterns and geographies destabilizing one another in a series that uncovers the base violence that underpins encounters and interactions from the epic and the domestic.
