White Trash/Medium Rare

Is Theatre Ltd.

White Trash/Medium Rare was a collaborative project with Is Theatre Ltd. This performance asked what it is to be white and Anglo-Australian. The project developed a new work from scratch, involving considerable workshop and improvisational activity. The ‘set’ was an installation in the gallery for the duration of the performance period.

Clearing

TRUDI BRINCKMAN, ANKE KINDLE, BENJAMIN BOOTH, ROSEMARY O'ROURKE, KIM PORTLOCK

CURATOR: COLIN LANGRIDGE // Clearing was an exhibition of primarily sculptural work from emerging artists. The concepts that directed the selection of work for this exhibition were based on the philosophical deliberations of Martin Heidegger; the idea of an enigmatic thing in itself, prior to understanding and language, forms the theme.

On the Run

Matt Warren

On the Run was the completion of an ongoing Absence series that Warren has been building work around for over six years. Warren’s installations generally incorporate video as a central aspect but develop this component into a more complex environment utilising a number of objects and forms, particularly those from the natural environment. In this case the installation used a covering of leaves over the gallery floor and projections representing places in Canada and in Tasmania.
