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

The gallery produces exhibitions showcasing captivating and challenging work from contemporary Australian artists.

The versatile space presents a blank canvas for cyclical reinvention in collaboration, 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 – this is a loveletter to her.”

    – Mitchell Zurek,  Director

When The Night Ripped a Hole Through Eden
Exhibitio
n

Oigåll Projects present When The Night Ripped A Hole Through Eden, an intricate and sensorial collection of furniture and objects by Melbourne (Naarm) based designer and artisan Michael Gittings. Opening in September, the exhibition is a celebration of Gittings’ multifaceted practice, highlighting his preoccupations with materiality and his devotion to the past, present and future potentialities of his craft.

These dark, twisting fabricatons of steel and metal challenge and entice; vaguely forbidden forms that nevertheless invite interaction and touch. Emerging from an amalgamation of organic and industrial influences, and underlined by romanticism, Gittings’ process is driven by an intuitive interaction with the material he works with; a deep respect and tender curiosity for the properties and treatments applied to raw materils that extends deep into the past. This highly engaged approach permeates his work, resulting in inherently experimental pieces that extend the context of materiality with beguiling results.

Establishing his design studio in Fawkner in 2016, Gittings has built a highly respected practice, with multiple works held in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Victoria.

Oigåll Projects present ‘Buffet’, a sumptuous new solo exhibition from Melbourne/Naarm based artist Billy Vanilli. With a distinctive flair for sensual and incandescent imagery, Billy explores themes of desire, consumption, nostalgia and intimacy. Capturing a realism that shimmers with dreamlike ebullience, his contemporary paintings are highly evocative; a sensory celebration of the tangible and emotional relationship we have with food & dining, and the rituals and symbols that these past times invoke. While embracing and exploring all that is erotic, hedonistic and decadent, his paintings are also a tender and personal love letter to art, life and passion. With this body of work, Billy continues to solidify himself as an exciting emerging artist with a refreshing vision and self-assured creative potential.

Billy’s work has previously been featured in several exhibitions, including ‘Rituals of Decadence’ at Oigåll Projects in 2021. His paintings have been acquired by private collectors locally and internationally.
