OIGÅLL PROJECTS is a gallery and conceptual testing ground located on Wurundjeri land at 122 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne (Naarm).

The gallery produces and host exhibitions, events and launches, celebrating and showcasing some of Melbournes best creative talents.

The versatile space presents a blank canvas for cyclical reinvention in collaboration with local creatives, unbound by history nor convention.


Pronounced ‘Oi-gul’ the project is named in honour of the late Irene (Gertrude) Spilsbury aka Oigåll (1926 - 2018).

“Always highly creative, she never held back and gave everything a go. The combination of her attitude and the space being located on Gertrude Street – it just felt like the project had to be a homage to her.”

    – Mitchell Zurek,  Director

Oigåll Projects present a visceral and strikingly candid exhibition of photography by Melbourne (Naarm) based artist and writer Matt Dunne. The Killing Sink unflinchingly exposes the deliberate destruction of a territorial species and their habitat, underlining our capacity for brutality and our fractured relationship with the natural environment.

Launching the 30 June – 10 July, the exhibition coincides with the release of a stunning debut monograph. Published in collaboration with João Linneu and Myrto Steirou at VOID, the book is poignantly designed and edited; a tangible evocation of Dunne’s body of work.

Cataloguing the illegal slaughter of Wedge-Tailed Eagles in Victoria, The Killing Sink is the culmination of years of fieldwork, community consultation and personal investigation. What began as a process of coming to terms with such casually executed (and reported) violence, evolved into a project of truth-seeking and witnessing. Dunne’s practice weaves together elements of cartography, reportage, historical research and documentary, resulting in a brutally honest but intimately composed portrait of annihilation.

Accompanying the exhibition, Naarm based artist Julian Leigh May presents a series of objects that speak to their own practice of making work at the juncture of art and design, engaging in a thoughtful dialogue with Dunne’s photography.

Inherently anthropological and confronting our legacy and future as a species, the work featured in The Killing Sink reflects on our apparently sadistic and masochistic instincts as all-consuming predators; to destroy and be destroyed in the process.

SUNFLOWERS (after Van Gogh) 
Exhibition


Oigåll Projects is pleased to present SUNFLOWERS (after Van Gogh) a new suite of paintings by Justin Hinder exploring his diagnosis and treatment of cancer starting in 2021.

Having had an irrational fear of the story of Van Gogh loosing his ear after an art class reproducing the artists work Sunflowers as a child; when faced with the same fate due to his health Hinder chose to revisit this time including the effects on his body and where he rested during his journey within this collection of paintings.

Reimagining the works ‘Portrait with Bandaged Ear, (1889)’, Bedroom in Arles, (1888) and ‘Sunflowers, (1888/89)’ Hinder accepts and understands his childhood demons as well as the new body that has resulted from the experience to investigate the human condition and resilience.
