All That Remains @ Stranger Factory


‘What remains when all is said and done? 21 Artists translate the phrase “All That Remains” in this bone, fantastical anatomical, “remains” themed exhibition. From ink to thread, from stone to bone, a variety of specimens will be unearthed inside Stranger Factory.’

On October 7 Stranger Factory will host an incredible show curated by Lana Crooks called ‘All that Remains’. This group show will feature some amazing pieces from artists around the world, including one of our favourite locals Mahlimae and will run alongside Stranger Factory’s Halloween inspired group show ‘Bewitching VI’. It will be an incredible evening with some intriguing pieces and you will also have an opportunity to meet Lana Crooks who will be in attendance on opening night along with some of the artists!

About the Gallery:

Stranger Factory is well known for its postmodern, pop surrealist and “lowbrow” art and the community and it supports. Stranger factory aspires to give art enthusiasts the opportunity to begin their collections with original works and limited edition releases at affordable prices. The gallery is the official flagship retail outlet for all Circus Posterus goods, including original artwork, limited edition prints, art volumes, sculptural editions, apparel, as well as other gifts, novelties, designer toys, and curious objects of beauty and wonder!

About the Curator: Lana Crooks

Lana Crooks loves the antique, the creepy, the cute and the mysterious. Constructing creatures from fabrics and found objects, she is a purveyor of faux specimens and soft curiosities that are a blend of science and fantasy. Sought after for her pattern-making abilities, she frequently teams up with other artists to breathe three dimensional life into their illustrations, earning her two Designer Toy Awards. She enjoys drawing from real specimens in dusty back rooms of Chicago’s natural history museums but, on an average day, you can find her in the studio surrounded by skulls, old books, aging fabrics, and a cat named Tanuki.

About Author

Kylie Dexter was born (and is currently living with her gorgeous boys, Rob and Zen)  in Melbourne, Australia. Inspired by Pop Surrealism and the New Contemporary Art movement  she began collecting original works and sculptures in the mid 90's. Since then her collection has grown to epic proportions. She has had an obsession with art from a young age and has an eye for emerging artists, and a deep understanding of the narrative the artist is trying to portray. She believes art can change the way people think and reach the deepest part of their psyches. Kylie has faith in art's ability to create an energy to express and reflect the  deep symbolism and stories that are untouchable in normal reality. She also has a  heartfelt connection to music and is a self-taught artist who brings needle felting to life via her dolls that are sold and shown around the world. With an enthusiastic addiction for writing about art, talking about art, looking at art and making art, what better place to be, surrounded by what you love! I feel passionate that Beautiful Bizarre Magazine raises the profile of up and coming artists, supports those already in the industry and contributes positively to galleries who share a common goal; to keep art alive and flowing, to keep people creating and more importantly keep people collecting and expressing themselves via the images on their walls. .
