THE ISTHMUS

Jon Tarry & Cameron Robbins

 

16 June - 22 July 2018

Opening Night 15 June 6-8pm

 

‘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.

 

 

UNTITLED

Andy Quilty & an unnamed artist

 

5 May - 10 June 2018

Opening Night 4 May 6-8pm

 

Untitled is a collaborative exhibition between Andy Quilty and a second artist who is currently a Masters candidate and prisoner in a West Australian jail.

 

Spanning drawing, painting and installation, this significant body of work explores ideas around punishment and rehabilitation, interrogating the cultural and political implications of societal attitudes towards the incarcerated.

 

Taking a first-person perspective of both ‘insider’ and ‘outsider’, the artists examine the impact of architectural design elements and micro-social prison environments on the physical, and psychological wellbeing of individuals.
