ARTISTIC BOKEH presents the exhibition ‘Never Forever’ by Australian artist Jai McKenzie and the launch of the latest issue of Runway Journal for Australian Experimental Art edited by Andrew Newman.

The issue reflects on how knowledge is generated within artistic practice and the launch will feature a presentation by Australian artist and research Dr. Joshua Harle.

‘Never Forever’ was conceived after the artist, Jai McKenzie, visited the Nakagin Capsule Tower; a decaying building positioned in the Shimbashi district of Tokyo. Designed by Metabolist architect Kisho Kurokawa and built over just 30 days in 1972, the Capsule Tower is composed of 140 inhabitable pods designed to be continuously removed, re-arranged, and ultimately destroyed.
Today, the pods are largely unoccupied and wait in varying states of decay for impending demolition.

‘Never Forever’ examines the dynamic journey of creation and destruction, the act of remembering and forgetting and the improbability of permanence in an inherently impermanent world. Various forms are eroded through light and fragmented through space. The work exists as if McKenzie sifted through the remains of the building to compile a rearrangement of objects repositioned within time, space and imagination.
