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 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 an homage to her.”

    – Mitchell Zurek,  Director

Paralysing Disproportions 
Exhibition

Harry Rothel explores concepts of space and self in ‘Paralysing Disproportions’, his 2022 show with Oigåll Projects opening June 9th to the 23th. Drawing on the shared trauma and instability caused by current political and social landscapes, Rothel presents reflections of himself through this series of paintings and sculptures, exploring how the pandemic and isolation has impacted his relationship with himself and ability to connect with reality.

Paralysing Disproportions reports on Rothels parallel existence, placing us in a slightly obscured view to his emotional psyche. The confused and unsure expressions of Rothels self referential characters accompanied with his stripped down paint application evokes an unsettling yet familiar feeling, akin to being on the edge of waking from a dream only to be pulled back into some sort of paralysis.

Across the series Rothel allows the viewer to suspend disbelief and enter into his merky world filled with daja vu, guided by a cast of romantic Harlequins and melancholic Pierrot clowns Paralysing Disproportions is a deep dive into the human condition and the connective emotional ties that bind us all together.
