Sam Octigan - What You Can't Forget


Art, Exhibits

Having had the opportunity and pleasure of releasing a few pieces of Sam's work through Stupid Krap over the past 12 months, and interviewing him about his concepts and creative process, it's exciting to see his work rapidly going from strength to strength. Following up on his debut solo show in 2012, his latest solo show titled 'What You Can't Forget' is an exhibition of painted works on canvas as well as a site specific mural installation.

"In this body of work, Octigan examines the idea of history repeating itself, the ways in which we subconsciously cling to certain moments in our lives and how these experiences underwrite the way we see things like certainty, truth, justice, faith and love. Even after having acknowledged the fallibility of these experiences. We feel ourselves acting out based on impressions we take on as children, only half aware as adults, of how these experiences are hard-written into our consciousness."

'What You Can't Forget'
April 10 - 27
Just Another Project Space,
153 Greville St, Prahran
