“Ambition is a lifestyle. Generate industrious wellbeing. Redefine your personal fulfilment through abundant success. Create your life’s work in your work life and be faithful to your own brand. Become part of the greater we.
Take 3 minutes out of your schedule today to gain unlimited productivity, open out creative capacity and build meaningful prosperity. Bod Pod™, the Gold Standard in Body Composition Analysis, can evaluate your current state of personal growth, recommend a course of action and, with repeat sessions, track the attainment of goals.
Productivity is authenticity is wellbeing is quantifiable. “
Linda Dement – Shotgun 7 text excerpt



Shotgun is an awarded opportunity that supports the advancement of selected Tasmanian artist/s through a customised and intensive program of high-level industry access, production assistance and critical engagement. Shotgun 7 artist Grace Herbert will present work developed through the program. Increase Productivity is the result of Grace’s preoccupation with ideas of control and regime which she explores through body composition assessment technology.


Shotgun: Industry access, critical engagement, new work


The project began in 2010 as the outcome of a public private collaboration between Contemporary Art Tasmania and Detached Cultural organisation and in 2017 it grew to include the Museum of Old and New Art.
During the Shotgun 7 program Grace worked closely with Sydney based artist Linda Dement. Grace also spent time with visiting industry professionals: Alexie Glass-Kantor, Helen Hughes, Jane Burchill and Jennifer McCamley, Michelle Newton, Jasmin Stephens and the Shotgun curatorium: Michael Edwards, Kylie Johnson, Craig Judd and Jarrod Rawlins. Shotgun 7 has been supported by commissioned texts by Linda Dement and Helen Hughes. Shotgun is a partnership project between Contemporary Art Tasmania, Detached Cultural Organisation and Mona.
