Curator and Artist Talks

Join us on Saturday 18 March for an hour of short videos created by Another Kind of Girl Collective. The video project has been facilitated by US community artist Laura Doggett who has worked for a number of years with Syrian refugees to help document their stories and lives. Another Kind of Girl (the short film that became the face of the project) was aired at the Sydney Film Festival in 2016, winning numerous accolades, including previews at Cannes and One World Film festivals.

The screening will be followed by refreshments and talks by curator and founder of Antidote, Grace Partridge, and Western Australian artist Nicole Monks who has created the beautiful video and sand installation each and every morn at AirSpace Projects.

This is also your last chance to catch exhibitions by Kawita Vatanajyankar, Another Kind of Girl Collective, Andy Mullens and Nicole Monks before they close at 5pm Saturday 18 March.

The first iteration of Antidote is an exploration of the female body and the land on which it survives and thrives. Themed ‘Anthropocene’, the works manifest subversive views of this newly discovered and somewhat contentious geological epoch, in which the earth is defined by its negative interaction with human kind. The four artists chosen investigate unique stories of female bodies through a cross-cultural lens, while eliciting how they engage with their physical land – as well as the socio-political issues and cultural questions that may arise from such an interaction.

Nicole Monks

Nicole Monks’ second iteration of Owning the Moon is a manifestation of her body of work: trans-disciplinary and investigating the paradigms of time, place & space between her Indigenous background and her western one.

Andy Mullens

Andy Mullens’ Bloodline is an intricate tapestry of history and diaspora. An assemblage of photos from Saigon, part strangers/part family – are re-contextualised through a connection of space, and a delicate red thread. Although all faces presented are affected by the war, the presentation of a chaotic family tree allows the viewer to commiserate the loss as well as revel in the connection to home and family.

Kawita Vatanajyankur

Kawita Vatanajyankur’s Machinized series is visually stunning – and in its simplicity, interrogates the concept of female labour, and the positioning more broadly of the female body in two worlds – her traditional Thai heritage, and the mechanically driven, consumption fuelled world of the West.

Kawita Vatanajyankur is represented by Stills Gallery.
