Wesley John Fourie

31 January – 24 February 2024

Part cathartic rambling, part karaoke goodness, in the Hyperballad series Wesley John Fourie takes on the role of the jester, the popstar seeking their two minutes of fame, the performer.

In a series of works straddling voyeurism and confessional modes of expression, the artist invites us into a manufactured world of vulnerability and Tumblr Girl style confessionalism, set against a pop music beat.

Wesley John Fourie is a multi award winning artist based in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Their work processes experiences of love, loss, and queer sexuality, often in relation to the natural environment.

Their work has been presented in artist run spaces, commercial galleries, and public institutions across Aotearoa, Asia, and Europe.
