I’m feeling really honoured to have been accepted at this next exhibition held by At the Vanishing Point (alongside my great friend Hayley Hill).  I’ll be presenting my Mimic videos, but I’m actually more excited by the sound of all the other amazing works that are being presented!  It looks set to be a really unique show with an eclectic mix of emerging artists and fascinating performers!  Don’t miss it!

Opening launch spectacular: Thursday 15 July 6:00pm – 9:00pm

Growing out of the avante-garde and conceptual art of the 1960s, performance in visual art – performance art – now more-than-ever is being utilised by artists in communicating and developing their ideas across a number of mediums, platforms and places.

Performance based and inspired visual art stretches across the gamut of emotions, sensations and affect. From the intimate, to the gestural, the manic to the meditative, it can take place anywhere, anytime – lasting seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, and sometimes even years.

From the artist as performer, to the audience as performer, performance based and performance inspired contemporary visual art often challenges audiences to think in new and unconventional ways about art, self, culture and the world around them.

actingUP offers a diverse smorgasbord of performance treats; from the live to the documentary, the abject to the interactive, the critical to the comedic. Featuring 15 local, interstate and international individual and collaborative artists, the performance based and inspired art of actingUP draws upon such disciplines as sound art, theatre, painting, drawing, video, documentary, photography, and, critical & conceptual discourses.

Artists:
Alexandra Unger (UK), Ana Nusdorfer Carter, Cuntstruct (VIC), Goran Tomic, Hayley Hill, Irnin Khan, Jan Cornall, Jeffrey Hamilton, mark dahl (CAN), Marya Elimelakh, Michelle Cox, Pineapple Park, SandS through the hourglass, Susannah Williams, The Academy of Emergency Art – Sydney.

The Mimic’s Grand Debut

Re.Production

Photographs from You Are A Mimic are going to be featured in a group show opening tomorrow night.

This is the statement released by the curator about Re.Production.

“Isn’t life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?” – Andy Warhol

Printmaking is an ancient form of art making. From text to imaging we can thank this practice for increasing the accessibility of information and education globally. Even since Andy Warhol’s Factory the integrity of artwork that is reproducible is still not held in the same regard as one that is a “one off”. Therefore Polymorph Art Gallery is providing a platform for contemporary artists who make work that can be reproduced in aim to dispel such myths.

Hand prints like screen, lino, mono and stencils change slightly with each edition, and like Chinese whispers, may end up completely different from the original. Photographic print making can vary from the darkroom, to the digital printer, to the photocopier. Even sculptors who work with moulding and casting can be considered print makers, producing copies of objects that they have translated artistically.

Opening night is on Tuesday 6th October, 7.30-9pm and the gallery details are as follows:
