Tabi-Tabi Po draws upon personal experiences of Filipino superstitions and voodoo, which then serve as a metaphor for the subsequent sensations of displacement, rejection and acceptance.

But the action doesn’t stop there.

Check out our January Drawing Workshops! 

In January Li Wenmin will be running two fabulous workshops Drawing For Beginners and Drawing Through Journey in the soon to be opened workshop area. Check Workshops on our menu for more information.

Wenmin is a practising artist who specialises in drawing. She trained in Beijing and has acquired a PhD (Fine Arts) from the College of Fine Arts, UNSW. Wenmin has been teaching at a tertiary level for well over ten years and is well positioned to not only assist you to acquire skills in drawing but also to build an understanding of what drawing is and the role of drawing in contemporary art today. Li Wenmin is represented by Flinders Street Gallery.

Alex Falkiner will also be re-running her popular Drawing With Thread and Stitching Off The Page on 25 and 31 January respectively. More details to come.

AirSpace Projects will be opening again on Friday 6 February 2015 with Iconoclasts. Stay tuned for details.

LWoodward_Five_06 cropped (1) copy blog

Artists Susan Andrews, Allan Giddy, James Nguyen & Yin Lan Soon, Mark Titmarsh and Laura Woodward will be engaging with motion or the idea of motion to reflect on the kinds of change or states of flux experienced in the world today. Their work, which range from paintings to video and sculpture, offer a political, social, cultural, philosophical or environmental response – however abstractly or metaphorically conceived – to the change observed.

The exhibition will conclude with an In Motion projection and performance night. The normally quiet Junction Street of Marrickville will come alive for two hours on Saturday 22 November from 7.30-9.30pm as artists project and perform their work in AirSpace Projects and in neighbouring properties. Event to be opened by Marrickville Mayor, Councillor Mark Gardener, followed by a Fan demonstration by Master Sue Chang of Tai Chi Fitness Australia. See Upcoming Exhibitions for more details.
