  • Ticket Price:Free

Description

Following on from AGWA’s late 2021 project 100 Vandals, which featured 100 black book drawings by Western Australian graffiti artists, Heavens Spot welcomes a select painter from this community of artists to leave their mark directly on the walls of AGWAs rooftop gallery. Its title refers to a graffiti location that is hard to reach and highly visible, and therefore highly prized. Located in AGWA’s uppermost gallery space and speaking out to the city’s high-rise backdrop, Heavens Spot is a dialogue between the cityscape that serves as the stimulus and surface for this artform and the cultural position of graffiti more broadly. Cultivating a layered awareness of the ways graffiti engages with our surroundings, Heavens Spot shifts perceptions in subtle and bold ways. Typical encounters with graffiti are often fleeting; shapes and colours command a moment’s attention, leaving impressions of a maker, a mark, a motif, as we move on to some other place. Equally, both the smallest tag to the largest masterpiece can become comfortably familiar as we recognise the practiced hand of graffiti writers who mark out territory along shared local routes. Though the walls of AGWA have been legalised for this moment, Heavens Spot does not seek to permit the act of painting illegally, rather it observes the significant creative influences that operate in this sphere. Part of an international network of painters, their marks remap cities and suburbs according to alternative feelings towards, and understandings of, the spatial frameworks that normally govern our lives.

A psychotomimetic combination of the synthetic and the organic.

They’ve long been a point of inspiration for Crab Claw and a singular creative force in the Australian dance music scene, releasing music via labels like Wax’o Paradiso, Animalia and Steeplejack. The duo’s live show takes an improvisational approach to live techno, drawing from natural textural soundscapes to speculate on rich sonic worlds of inhabitation. Their expansive sets draw on left-field techno, breakbeat and drum & bass, moving through moods and genres with deft attention to detail and rare flow – their arrival in Boorloo is long-awaited and not to be missed! Complimenting OK EG’s performance in the cavernous Rechabite Hall are extraordinary disk jockeys Ephacy and Kill Gill along with analogue techno wizards Lorentz & Zeeman, delivering a brain-busting live set.
