OPENING NIGHT: FRIDAY 6 MAY 6-8PM
Out of Time
Michelle Heldon, Taryn Raffan and Kath Fries
Out of Time traces the artists’ personal engagements with place and time during their residencies in Greenland, Iceland and Finland. Their works range from drawings and sculptures to videos, photographs and installations, conveying felt experiences and responses to the pull of the magical, inner power of the landscapes, icebergs, forests, lava fields, cultures and story-telling traditions of the far north.
Sites that facilitate queer and homosexual erotic encounters are diverse. Clustered throughout the city, toilets, bathhouses, parks and the streets themselves are sites of queer sexual resistance which, when they lay dormant, can be activated with a single glance.
Bailee Lobb and Amy Claire Mills
Collusions explores collaboration as a secretive and private act between two people, when we make we make together. The work is only ever discussed between the collaborators and evolves not only through their connection, but also through the exclusion of the outside world.
Inspired by recent developments in Australian immigration policy, as well as the artist’s family history as exiles, refugees and immigrants, Dune is a meditation on territory and identity: a contemplation of borders, belonging, displacement and mutation.
