THE ISTHMUS

Jon Tarry & Cameron Robbins

 

Until - 22 July 2018

 

‘The Isthmus’, responds to conditions of site, amplifying environmental forces to generate artfully informed responses to specific location and circumstance. The peninsula site of Heathcote is an elevated limestone promontory, part of the deep ecology of the Swan River. It catches the scent of Ocean merging with dynamic natural light, shifting by day as the celestial sky by night assures the vastness of time passing. The project will integrate a ‘test site’, sensing and recording the approach to the elemental drift. Wind powered drawing devices, solar inscribers, sonic sensors will fuse in a multidisciplinary exhibition by artists Cameron Robbins and Jon Tarry.

 

‘The Isthmus’ is a part of the ‘EarthCone’ project, which has taken the artists to diverse locations, from the Teufelsberg listening stations in Berlin to the dormant volcano Mt Noorat in Victoria. Heathcote will build on and reference aspects of these projects.

 

DOUBLE BRICK

28 July - 2 September 2018 Opening Night 27 July 6-8pm

 

Charmaine Ball, Hannah Becsi, Meghan Gibb, Jane Grierson, Lukas Mack, Bella Scharfenstein and Marina van Leeuwen

 

In the hands of seven local artists, the humble WA brick becomes a powerful motif to explore our historical, cultural and economic desires for a stable home of our own.

 

Charmaine Ball, Hannah Becsi, Meghan Gibb, Jane Grierson, Lukas Mack, Bella Scharfenstein and Marina van Leeuwen investigate and present new perspectives on the conventional suburban model and the voids hidden behind the brick façade.
