Artists: Rosie Manning, Julie Calabrese, Marilyn Davis-Moore, Sharon Eves, Marilyn Barrington, Leah Van Lieshout, Anne Marie Pelusey-Zentner, Carol Rowling, Kale Miller, Jill Parrnell, Heather-Noonan. Whilst our work practices are somewhat 'eclectic', we produce art that unites us as exhibiting artists both through our group experience and through the thematic approaches to our exhibitions. Our group members are skilled in painting, photography, textiles, mixed media, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics and jewellery. Each exhibition held has showcased a different blend of both 2D and 3D artworks. This exhibition reveals each artist's response to the theme 'Linked Beyond'. Ideas that inform this body of work include - 'going beyond the boundary of the city into country', 'the feelings evoked by the delightful town of York and its people', 'acknowledging the rich, expansive Indigenous and European history' and 'the feeling of more space - the distance between'.

Darkfield's COMA

COMA, the third installation of the highly acclaimed multi-sensory series, DARKFIELD, invites participants to slip into a collective dream state.

  • Dates:May 20 - June 20, every night except Monday
  • Time(s):Every half-hour from 6:15pm until 8:45pm
  • Venue:Perth Cultural Centre

Details

  • Hosted By:Realscape Productions
  • Performing Arts:Theatre

Description

COMA is set in a 40ft sea-container, each wall lined with bunk beds. Audience members lie down in a bed, each becoming separated from their counterparts. Alone in the darkness, the multi-sensory elements engulf each participant, suggestive of the show’s own namesake. Imagine the moment of waking up is actually the moment when your dream begins. In light of this new and strange reality, how can we save you from the unspeakable horrors which lurk in the dark recesses of your mind? The only cure we offer is a placebo and a promise. Please remember when you leave, to take your body with you. The setting is clinical and reminiscent of a hospital ward, and despite being created prior to COVID-19, it becomes more relevant and confronting now that the pandemic is ever-present. As with all Darkfield experiences, a strange world is built from 360 degree binaural sound that perplexes the senses, deepening the immersion by casting doubt on what is real and what is imagined. Loss of vision heightens the remaining senses, making them vulnerable to manipulation.

Darkfield's FLIGHT

Using Darkfield’s signature 360 degree sound and absolute darkness, FLIGHT jolts participants between this world and alternates.

  • Dates:May 20 - June 20, every night except Monday

FLIGHT explores the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics and how this conveniently tells us how to avoid the worst case scenarios that we all fear. Ladies and gentlemen, we’d like to direct your attention to the on-board safety demonstration and ask that you give us your full attention. There are many worlds in which this plane lands safely.

  • Type:Free
  • Art Exhibitions:Other Visual Arts

Description

Curated by Sandra Murray. Opening night event Friday 28 May, 6pm | Free admission - RSVP Required. The interpretations comprise a series of emotionally charged mixed media works. Scribbled ramblings from the artist’s journal glimpse between layers of deconstructed photographs, spray paint and gaffa tape. Mural-style works transform external walls of the building, leading viewers inside. A darkened room plays host to video and large works on board. Billboard-style posters and smaller works on card are sectioned with paint in a separate room. The integration of banal objects heightens curiosity and adds context to the works. 'As an inner-city dweller, I am interested in photographing scenes of the unremarkable. I find quiet beauty in the ugliness of the ordinary. A narrative of exposing the anonymous unfolds through manipulation, the rhythmic repetition and overlapping of imagery gouges beyond the superficial.' Accompanying the exhibition is the release of a limited edition 48 page book containing exhibition works, digital compositions & poetry. The exhibition runs until Friday 25 June 2021. Check Facebook for opening hours. The project has been made possible thanks to funding through the City of Stirling’s Community Creativity Fund. Supported by the Civic Hotel, Inglewood.
