A selection of past and upcoming exhibitions.

New, July 2012

Finally got my copies of The Redrawing Times from the Collected Collaborations show: an exhibition initiated by Redrawing Collective (Ben Harper, Fiona Macdonald, Alex Martinis Roe, Thérèse Mastroiacovo and Spiros Panigirakis) and OSW (Terri Bird, Bianca Hester and Scott Mitchell). Guest Curator: Brad Haylock. The exhibition opened at the Monash University Museum of Art late last year.

Expect to see samples of the pages I wrote and designed later this month.

The Redrawing Collective focuses upon the artist's book as a collective site of production and reception. The group examines and remodels the record of its past dialogues, creating a two-part book that is both a performative object and a platform for critical engagement.

Featured Exhibitions

Redrawing: String Quartet No.2 (Canon in Beta)

A new audiovisual installation version of String Quartet No.2 (Canon in Beta), made for Fiona Macdonald's group exhibition Redrawing at RMIT Project Space in Melbourne, June 2008. Revised in September 2008 for CAST (Contemporary Art Space Tasmania).

The Slips

A day-long performance at Clubs Project Inc. in 2003, playing with the anomalies of plain language, trying to shake meanings loose from the sounds of words, turning speech into music.

2000 Guitar Solos

I love and hate the guitar. So I'm going to write and play 2000 solos for it. The first installment was shown at TCB Art Inc. in 2003.

Mock Tudor No.2 (Why doesn't someone get him a Pepsi?)

"Every once in a while Don would scream at his mother 'Sue! Get me a Pepsi!' There was nothing else to do in Lancaster." My first live sound installation, generating feedback with two loudspeakers and a microphone. Presented at Bus gallery in 2002.

Third City: Walking on Red and Blue

Several walks through one city, interpreted through maps for a second city. A depiction of a Third City emerges through a spatialised array of writing, drawings, diagrams, photographs and sound. Includes images and an mp3.
