Claire Lambe: Mother Holding Something Horrific

Saturday 8th April - Sunday 25th June @ ACCA, Southbank

In this major exhibition of newly commissioned work, the artist’s most ambitious project to date, Claire Lambe employs sculpture, photography, biography and theatrical mise-en-scène to create intimate and intense psychological spaces in an ambitious attempt to describe the human condition in its cruel reality and horrifying glory.

Known for her strange and often abject sculptural forms, Claire Lambe’s work explores psychological narratives of gender, sexuality, identity and class, leading to anxious objects full of revelatory and emancipatory potential. In a deeply subjective and sometimes transgressive practice of psychodrama and catharsis, Melbourne-based and English-born Lambe draws upon a rich bank of personal history and reference material as a starting point for her investigation into the ambiguity between memory and experience, reality and re-enactment.

Claire Lambe: Mother Holding Something Horrific will charge ACCA’s extensive gallery spaces with a series of dramatic installations that are at once uncanny, anarchic and full of life and libido. The installation will be further enlivened by an occasional series of performances by contemporary dancer and choreographer Atlanta Eke which will develop in the gallery space over the course of the exhibition, continuing an ongoing collaboration between the two artists.

Australian Centre for Contemporary Art
111 Sturt Street, Southbank VIC 3006, Melbourne, Australia
10 am–5 pm Tuesday to Friday; 11 am–5 pm weekends and public holidays, Monday by appointment.

Revolt She Said Revolt Again

Revolt. She said. Revolt again.

Friday 16th June - Sunday 9th July @ Malthouse Theatre, Southbank

Revolt. She said. Revolt again. by UK playwright Alice Birch is a theatrical assault on the language that has reinforced violence against women for centuries, and an explosion of what womanhood means in the 21st century.

You are expected to behave... Use the right words ... Act appropriately... Don’t break the rules... Just behave. This play is not well behaved.

Birch pokes and prods, slices and dices language into a revolt upon itself, calling it to take arms against the conventions of work, sex, motherhood, aging and love.

Revolt is a powerful new work of contemporary writing, and a welcome lesson in disobedience — it twists words into action and holds language to account, in an effort to finally make change happen.

June 16 to July 9

School Damage Live at RRR

Monday 26th June @ Triple R Performance Space, Brunswick East

Melbourne/Geelong quartet School Damage began as a bedroom recording project for Carolyn Hawkins (Chook Race, Parsnip) and Jake Robertson (Ausmuteants, Frowning Clouds). They released a cassette for Moontown Records in 2013, then were joined by Jeff Raty (Richie 1250 & the Brides of Christ) and Dani Damage.

Their debut self-titled album, out now through Chapter Music, was recorded in Melbourne and Geelong by Billy Gardner (Ausmuteants, Living Eyes) and mixed/mastered by Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring).

Taking cues from pop outfits such as the Vaselines, Particles and Young Marble Giants, School Damage's sound is defined by wobbly keyboards, weaving bass lines, and lyrical content focused on the anxieties of modern life and love.

Triple R Subscriber Screening - It Comes At Night

Wednesday 28th June @ Cinema Nova, Carlton

Award-winning filmmaker Trey Edward Shults follows his breakout debut Krisha with the psychological horror thriller It Comes At Night, centring on a teenage boy (Kelvin Harrison, Jr.) as he grapples with mounting terrors — external and otherwise — in the aftermath of an unnamed cataclysm.

Secure within a desolate home with his vigilant, protective and heavily armed parents (Joel Edgerton and Carmen Ejogo), 17-year-old Travis navigates fear, grief and paranoia amid scarce resources as a desperate young couple (Christopher Abbott and Riley Keough) seeks refuge in his family home with their young child.

Despite the best intentions of both families, panic and mistrust boil over as the horrors of the outside world creep ever closer. But they are nothing compared to the horrors within, where Travis discovers that his father’s commitment to protecting the family may cost him his soul.

It Comes At Night is in Cinemas from July 6, Roadshow Films & Cinema Nova, Triple R Sponsors.

Heart is a wasteland

Thursday 29th June - Sunday 16th July @ Malthouse Theatre, Southbank

Heart Is A Wasteland is a tale from acclaimed Indigenous storyteller siblings John and Margaret Harvey.

Against the backdrop of a burnt, central Australian landscape, and backed by the sounds of a lonesome guitar, Ursula Yovich (Australia, The Sapphires stage production)and Aaron Pedersen (Water Rats, Mystery Road, Goldstone) play out a whiskey-fuelled battle of egos, desires and hidden scars. 

Raye is a country music star in the making. She’s playing pub to pub along Australia’s vast desert highways, flogging demo CDs for 10 bucks apiece. Her life becomes entwined with that of another wanderer when she meets Dan, and a love affair unfurls over the four-day drive north from Roxby to Alice Springs. It’s a luminous journey into how we hurt and how we heal.

At the Beckett Theatre from June 29 to July 16

ACCA Greater Together

Greater Together

Saturday 8th July - Sunday 17th September @ ACCA, Southbank

Greater Together begins with the question of work and of how to work better. It takes place in a period of uncertainty, when contemporary societal divisions (political, environmental, cultural and geographic) are creating real need to share knowledge and resources, and to reassess ideas of production and organisation – professionally, socially and artistically.

Curated by Annika Kristensen, this exhibition assembles eight artist projects that complicate individual notions of authorship to consider ideas of collaboration and cooperation as deliberate and productive means of agency and solidarity in a complex and changing world.

A ninth project WORK/SHOP, developed by Laura Couttie, engages four artist practitioners and collaborators (Debris Facility, Get to Work, OK YEAH COOL GREAT and Paradise Structures) to draw out themes from the exhibition, exploring alternative modes of authorship, production and labour, the concept of art practice as commodified work, and the retail space as a site of exchange.

8 July – 17 September at ACCA, Southbank
