Dormitorium by Matthew Bird

Dormitorium - Matthew Bird

Sunday 5th March 2017 - Sunday 9th July 2017 @ McClelland Sculpture Park

At the McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery is Dormitorium by Matthew Bird.


Dormitorium is the latest interactive sculptural project by Melbourne-based architect Matthew Bird. The project features a communal sleep chamber and exploratory environment that encourages audiences to engage with a complexity of sensory propositions – from textures and materials to the immersive effects of moving light and sound technologies.


Sleeping is solidary and yet we share this private activity with others, those we know and sometimes with strangers. The artist explores what happens when we open ourselves to share this restful experience in an immersive chamber.


Dormitorium opens this Sunday at McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery

Freshwater - Shepparton Art Museum

Freshwater - Shepparton Art Museum

Saturday 1st April 2017 - Sunday 4th June 2017 @ SAM - Shepparton Art Museum

Coming up at Shepparton Art Museum is Freshwater

 

An exhibition that considers how water reflects ecological, cultural, political and economic realities. Through the works of over 20 Australian artists and artist collectives, alongside historic works drawn from the museum’s collection, FRESHWATER highlights how water remains central to identity, and to how and where we live.

 

Issues range from ecological concerns about rising salinity, healthy ecologies, refuse and waste, to the inevitable contest around sustainable balances between conservation concerns and agricultural needs.

Through a range of media, from video and moving image, works on paper, installation and sound, artists and arts collectives selected enable us to engage with these central issues around water of our times.

Freshwater opens this Saturday at the Shepparton Art Museum

Chronophobia  by Katie Paine c3

Chronophobia by Katie Paine

Wednesday 12th April 2017 - Tuesday 2nd May 2017 @ C3 Contemporary Art Space - Abbotsford Convent, Abbotsford

At C3 Contemporary Art Space is Chronophobia by Katie Paine


In this exhibition the artist uses collage, assemblage, video and text to explore notions of historicity and the archive, through the creation of complex fictions. Within her hybrid practice, Paine explores the way that events are documented and integrated into our collective understanding of history. The term Chronophobia is defined as a fear of time: and in her work Paine explores the act of making as an act of recovery – with new constructed images and texts as a way of creating points of stasis.


Chronophobia opens this Wednesday at C3 Contemporary Art Space

Stargazed Presents: Fierce Mild 'Solaris' Video Launch

Monday 17th April 2017 - Wednesday 26th April 2017 @ Gasometer, Fitzroy

Solaris, the latest single by Fierce Mild, was written entirely as a response to a dream journal. The result is something that makes sense in the moment but leaves you with a feeling of not knowing entirely what happened. Continually playing with the idea of conscious and subconscious interaction, the video explores a tumultuous psyche with the inspiration of a haunting murder which took place on the Great Ocean Road.

Fierce Mild’s performance is an audio visual performance art piece that is like being caught in a very beautiful yet very strange dream; one that is as dynamic as it surreal. The sextet bombards audiences with a continuous, cinematic psycho-thriller from start-to-finish.

Surrealist-horror projection works of live video artist Stephanie Peters are matched to beautiful dreamscapes of sound art and electric cello between songs that bind the music together into a singular cohesive narrative.

Tandoori Turquoise and Mulberry Mauves by Mary Barton

Tandoori Turquoise and Mulberry Mauves by Mary Barton

Wednesday 26th April 2017 @ NKN Gallery

Coming up at NKN Gallery is Tandoori Turquoise and Mulberry Mauves by Mary Barton


This exhibition sees Mary Barton further developing her unique visual language across a dozen canvases.

In this body of work her characteristic imagery extends to take in the architecture, brilliant fabrics and sumptuous colours of Java and India, where Barton travelled and worked for six months.


Collecting pigments and dyes from various areas, Barton references upended landscapes on the canvases, itemizing the elements within them. She presents both deep and shallow spaces within individual works, some desert-hot others forest-cool.

Ritual Intimacy by Christian Thompson

Ritual Intimacy by Christian Thompson

Thursday 27th April 2017 - Friday 7th July 2017 @ Monash University Art, Design and Architecture (MADA) Gallery

At Monash University’s Museum of Modern Art is Ritual Intimacy by Christian Thompson

 

This exhibition is the first survey of one of Australia's leading Indigenous artists which covers the breadth of his practice. Thompson, of the Bidjara people, works across photography, video, sculpture, performance and sound to explore notions of identity, race and Australia's colonial history. The exhibition will include his best-known work in photography, where he has used his own image to present ideas about identity and the collision of cultures, along with his audio and video works that celebrate language and gesture through performance, sound and song.

Ritual Intimacy is on this Thursday at Monash University’s Museum of Modern Art
