About the artists:
Lisa Radford is an artist who writes and teaches. She was one of fourteen artists profiled with a solo presentation of as part of 'Painting. More Painting' at Australian Centre for Contemporary Art in 2016. Other recent exhibitions include 'Approx. Geez Louise', Sutton Projects, Melbourne, 2015, and 'The 3rd Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art', Russia, as part of 'Footnotes' – a collaborative project with Liang Luscombe and 3-Ply publishing (Fayen d’Evie). Between 1999 and 2010 she was a participant in the collaborative art group DAMP. In 2016, Lisa presented 'Dear Masato, all at once (get a life, the only thing that cuts across the species is death)' at West Space. Presented across the entire gallery, this project was part of West Space’s annual commission series, which invests in an Australian artist to create a new body of work.
Masato Takasaka is a Melbourne-based artist known for both his performances as a lead guitarist in über-hip rock bands, as well as his visual art practice. Takasaka thinks about his studio practice in musical terms, describing his aesthetic as an iPod Shuffle: playing the greatest hits of 20th century avant-garde art, with references to constructivism, dada, pop and minimalism alongside the back catalogue of his own greatest hits.
Masato completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Hons) at the Victorian College of the Arts in 1999 and his PhD at Monash University in 2014. Recent exhibitions include 'TarraWarra Biennial 2016: Endless Circulation, TarraWarra Museum of Art', Healesville, 2016; 'Don't Kurt Cobain', Slopes, Melbourne, 2014; 'Melbourne Now', National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 2013; 'Roppongi Crossing 2013: OUT OF DOUBT', Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, 2013; and 'Reinventing the Wheel: the Readymade Century', Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne, 2013.
