Object 77b brings to the space new and recent works by Ludvig Gustafsson, Felicity Hammond and Anna Reading. The exhibition borrows its title from the 1971 book Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. This Russian science fiction novel is about humans dealing with strange artefacts left on Earth after a mysterious alien visit, and depicts a world that is coarse, hopeless and in a chronic state of social decay. Exhibiting together for the first time these artists reflect upon similar tropes whilst remaining distinct in their approach to material and the context of their surroundings.

Australian artist John Nixon has been exhibiting his version of non-objective art in Australia and internationally since the early 1970s, exploring the principals of minimal and geometric abstraction to convey a sense of their possibilities. The use of a group of primary and secondary colours, art and non-art materials, and a strong relationship with the surrounding space are key to Nixon’s personalisation of an art form that originated in the early 20th century. Nixon’s motivations as an artist were originally informed by late 1960s minimal art, conceptual art and Arte Povera, then channelled through the early movements of Russian Constructivism, Futurism and Fauvism – movements which have sought to challenge and re-define the function and purpose of art – and which inform his ongoing exploration.
