Snapshots – Magic @ House Of Bricks – Melbourne

After cruising down to the fantastic Ghostpatrol show last Friday night, we headed over to House Of Bricks to check out the “Magic” group show. As we mentioned earlier, we didn’t really know what to expect – obviously, themes of Magic, but we were pleasantly surprised that there was more than one form of magic to be found.

A large piece of prose on the wall greeted us, a parting gift from Ha-Ha before he headed off on his global journey, and, inside, a whole array of diverse and intriguing art with a cool center piece installation. Some of the work was literal to the theme, and some of it took the Magic Johnson idea and ran with it.

All of it was a more than pleasant surprise – and witty show that perfectly befit its moniker.

Exhibition – Magic – House Of Bricks – Melbourne

Well, we don’t know too much about this event beyond the info we’ve found on the facebook page – "HOB will explore the world of magic, myth & ritual, from the infinite origins of………….//"

It also includes a slightly mysterious quote form Magic Johnson …

"My diet is mostly chicken and fish. I make sure I get a lot of vegetables, a lot of fruit. I am a big fruit man, I am a vegetable man anyway. And I also get a lot of rest. That’s the key … I may be up early, but I’m in bed early too".

Cryptic, but interesting, as the roster of artists involved is pretty damn cool and includes many of our favourite Melbourne artists! Something to go and check out on Friday night, for sure.
