Warporn

Adam Cuthbert

Using plasticine, moss, cardboard, petrol and gunpowder as well as images of eerily familiar landscapes, Adam Cuthbert presents digital prints of constructed dioramas that depict contemporary and historical battle scenes. Meticulously assembled and then subjected to a process of ‘dirt bombing,’ these dioramas make up the mise en scene for the work. Such childish endeavours serve as a platform for a critique of the violence and hysteria present in our contemporary age of terror.

CURATORS: CAROLYN WIGSTON, JACK ROBINS, JESSICA DAVIDSON, MEG COWELL, BEATRIX BAE BOUWMAN, FIONA RICHARDSON, SARAH JONES // Moving in a space that is somewhere between ghetto and the real world, the student artist creates in a bubble, sheltered from the outside by the safety net of the institution. Building upon the base of theory taught in these institutions, the 'pre-emerging' artist is faced with the dilemma of where their work fits in relation to an historical notion of art making, while also considering how it becomes the art of the future. As disparate art forms merge, established structures shift in a constant flux and form new spaces in which to create. Questions arise as to what has come before, the world in which we live and the technologies we have at our disposal.

Register: Tasmanian Artists 2006

DENISE AVA ROBINSON, AMANDA DAVIES, DAVID MARTIN, LISA GARLAND, FRED FISHER, MATT CALVERT, CATHERINE WOO, MICHAEL MURUSTE, MISH MEIJERS, PETRA MEER

CURATORS: MICHAEL EDWARDS & CRAIG JUDD // Register is the outcome of some fifty artist studio visits by Craig Judd and Michael Edwards around Tasmania, 2005/2006. Initially we were looking for artists who had not had a significant exhibition profile or history, but it became apparent that most of the artists we visited have an active exhibition profile throughout Tasmania and Australia. We were interested to see the artists’ recent works from the previous two years. It was important to get a sense of the work and where and how it was made. There was no program or predetermined search for specific themes or content or types of practice.
