Whitcher Projects is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by Annabelle Arlie. It is the artist’s first solo presentation.

Annabelle Arlie's work speaks to the complex temporality of humankind. She assembles contemporary cultural objects with artisanal, primitive ones in a manner that can collectively reference the Totem—engaging the concept of a prior belief or symbol that has been reconstituted in an updated context and allowed to assume new meanings and significances as a result. These assemblages speak to the paradoxical nature of human existence and abide by what is sometimes referred to as the riddle of the Sphinx: "What walks on four feet in the morning, two in the afternoon and three at night?” Oedipus answered: "Man: as an infant, he crawls on all fours; as an adult, he walks on two legs; in old age, he uses a 'walking' stick."
