Another Misspent Portrait of Etienne de Silhouette, 1999-2007/2009/2014

---

Another Misspent Portrait of Etienne de Silhouette returns to Australia after a decade for its inaugural presentation at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, in whose collection it now resides.

This staging of the project involves a gallery installation of the project along the lines of the Venice and Leuven showings. For this occasion Chris Bond was invited to participate and his response, Vogue Hommes, September 1986, Mirror, 2014, a treatment of Another Misspent Portrait's... source magazine as a painted object, is an important and welcomed addition to the installation.

On each Thursday evening in January at the MCA between 6 and 7pm there will be presentations and events as part of the project's 'response' program. These include an artist talk by Christian Capurro (8th); the opportunity for a 'dermal reading' of the erased and inscribed Vogue Hommes magazine when it can once again (sadly, only on that night) be held and touched (15th); Dr Karen de Perthuis presenting a talk entitled Erasing Fashion: Reflections on Fashion Photography and Christian Capurro's 'Another Misspent Portrait of Etienne de Silhouette' (22nd); and, lastly, a discussion around work, effacement, and visibility (29th) that begins with this observation by one of the erasure-collaborators on the projects: "The more I worked on my page the more it became like everyone else's."

Additionally, an intact, unerased copy of the Vogue Hommes #92, September 1986, magazine has been placed in the Schaeffer Fine Arts Library at the Power Institute, University of Sydney, with the call number 746.92 109.

For the duration of the show the Another Misspent Portrait's... editioned project poster will be available at the MCA store.
