VACANCY, conceived and created by photographer Cybele Malinowski, presents an evocative series of portraits of those flea-bitten motel rooms, neon saturated dives and kitsch roadside relics that stand testament to a fleeting mode of life.

This solo show offers a nostalgic homage to the 20th Century life vanishing before our eyes, featuring a collection of snapshots from travels on the lost highways of the USA and Australia including Lynchian scenes of dreamy outer-suburban abandonment.

Amongst the imagery of ruffled sheets is a suggestion of sexually charged fleeting encounters, while the enveloping fabric of surreal architectural monuments shrouds a frayed and de-homogenised world.

Cybele will also be installing a recreated motel room within the GAFFA gallery space, and on the opening night, it will feature a lone traveler mechanically dressing and undressing, bathed in the dim light of a motel TV.

Unable to enter the room, the wine & cheese gallery goer takes the roll of voyeur as they peer through the windows and gaze on the lonesome scene.
