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.

The Artists Are Present

Sunday 20 March 11-5pm

AirSpace Projects is extending it’s opening hours for the final day of Art Month!

image005

Over the course of Sunday 20 March, between 11-5, the exhibiting artists Phaptawan Suwannakudt, Marie McMahon, Katya Petetskaya and Emily Copp will come and go for informal conversations about their work.

RB8 copyPhaptawan Suwannakudt was born in Thailand and has been living in Australia for twenty years. She is an established artist and began her art career as a temple mural painter. Phaptawan’s contemporary installation and paintings, Reincarnation of the Butterflies, addresses her relocation to Australia from Thailand and the memories emerging from that experience.  Phaptawan’s work is in major collections and was chosen by curators Catherine de Zegher and Gerald McMaster to be represented in the 18th Biennale of Sydney, All Our Relations, 2014.

MM3Marie McMahon, political poster-maker of 1975-90 Tin Sheds fame, has been visiting the Botany Bay National Park one day a week for three years and filling her visuals diaries with colour swatches.  These have been translated into relief models which in turn have been transformed into exquisite landscape paintings of folded colour. As well as being interesting both formally and philosophically, the fold also echoes the architectural facades of 1960s buildings Marie documented while researching in Cambodia.

The Spill_1_950Katya Petetskaya’s paintings explore the politics of contamination through oil spills. Oil spills shape Australian landscapes economically and politically because Australian companies invest in international companies that are responsible for oil spills both inside and outside of Australia including her birth place, Russia. In addition to painting Katya works as a performance artist, attempting correlationist experiments with alternative forms of knowledge that go beyond thought to understand the co-relation between body and reality.

Emily photo blogEmily Copp is passionate about the environment, particularly the impact of unconventional coal seam gas mining on communities and natural resources.  In As Above, So Below Emily translates her concerns into table platters and jewellery through new technologies of 3D printing and hydraulic pressing. Emily has worked closely with the Lock The Gate Alliance during this project and is highly motivated to explore ethical and environmental issues through her work. Emily studied at Enmore College of Design and is a community-minded and contributing tenant – along with her well-trained dog Tiga – at SquarePeg Studios, Marrickville.

Location: AirSpace Projects, 10 Junction St, Marrickville, 2204

Join Emily Copp at AirSpace Projects on Friday the 11th of March 2016 for a night of awareness raising documentaries around the subject of unconventional gas mining.

Australia has seen rapid expansion of coal and coal seam gas development over the last 5 years, despite widespread and vocal community opposition. Come along to find out more about the issues at hand as well as listen to guest speakers and engage in conversation around this important topic.

This event is a fundraiser for Lock the Gate Alliance, a national grassroots organisation made up of over 40,000 supporters and more than 250 local groups, who are concerned about unsafe coal and gas mining. These groups are located in all parts of Australia and include farmers, traditional custodians, conservationists and urban residents.

Hosted by AirSpace Projects and Emily Copp in conjunction with her exhibition, As Below, So Above, a collection of works made in response to her concerns around coal seam gas mining.
