Adipocere - I do not exist - Debut solo show

Posted on


Beinart Gallery presents “I do not exist,” the debut solo exhibition of Melbourne-based embroidery artist Adipocere.


This exhibition explores the unique relationship between a somewhat innominate artist and their artwork. At this showing, they present a wide allegory derived from a level of personal, physical separation to depict studies of abnegation.

OPENING NIGHT: Saturday, January 13, from 6–9 pm. Free entry.

This exhibition runs from January 13 to February 4 and runs alongside Mahlimae's solo show, "Lost souls of the Erlking."

Complimentary wine will be available at the opening. For those wanting a non-alcoholic option, we will also have drinks provided by Remedy Kombucha.

adipocere Hand embroidery by Adipocere.

Adipocere (Melbourne, Australia), a self-taught hand embroidery artist, primarily creates their imagery for the therapeutic catharsis evoked through the medium. Their work focuses on displaying what they refer to as emotional self-portraiture while operating within the confines of a constantly developing, overarching fiction, one with small roots in reality but using motifs and symbolism to delineate concepts such as martyrdom, asceticism, existentialism, and the eventuality of death. Adipocere is inspired by their environmental science studies, focusing on misrepresented fauna and the point at which humanity intersects.

Adipocere has primarily displayed their work across the United States via the Hive Gallery, Light Grey Art Lab, Gristle Art Gallery, Paradigm Gallery, Last Rites Gallery, Stranger Factory and Superchief Gallery, as well as in their hometown via beinArt Gallery. As an emerging artist, they’ve been recently branded “Artist on the Rise” by the prolific Beautiful Bizarre magazine and have been published in the likes of Yen magazine and across digital blogs, including Haute Macabre and Bleaq.
