 Aaron Hoffman is an artist living and working in Melbourne. He is currently completing his MFA at the Victorian College of the Arts. Aaron’s studio practice utilizes sculpture, installation, and video, to generate ‘images’ that explore the absent body and psychological states of loss and restraint. Aaron employs casting and construction techniques to hybridize and disrupt characteristics of the original objects or site to redirect the course of the object and to visually agitate the uncanny.

This shopping strip, mostly businesses that are family owned or locally run, is encountering a
new kid in the block. The recently built shopfront and above apartments at 171 Wheatsheaf
Road is a clean, and currently unoccupied building, bursting with the potential that the
neighbouring counterparts have.


The artworks bring a sense of playfulness in its interaction with space, and the potential for
occupancy which this space will inevitably see in the future. The exhibition brings forth the
relationships human interaction has with space, no matter how vacant, while hinting at the
continual shift and growth of one streetscape and at large, the Glenroy Suburb.
