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.
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.
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.
"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.
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.
