This week in ‘Art – What’s On’, two exhibitions with thought provoking photographic images and artists works.
Just Can’t Get Enough
Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts
Troy-Anthony Baylis, Bindi Cole, Clinton Nain, Duncan Robinson
Curated by Ben McKeown
27 June – 2 August 2009
“The rise in popularity of contemporary Indigenous art, combined with the risk taking attitudes of many Indigenous artists, has forged a pathway that has helped shape a new popular culture in this country – one that embraces all artforms. The artists in this exhibition have been chosen for their proactive engagement with urban discourse, all celebrating identity while exploring individual interests”.
Sutton Gallery – Project Space
Linda Tegg & Sanja Pahoki
16 July 2009 – 15 August 2009
“Exhibiting together, Tegg and Pahoki present an intelligent and thought-provoking representation of issues surrounding the psyche and the physical. In Dancer, a two channel video work, Tegg mesmerizes the viewer, circling the contemplation subject and simultaneously alerting one to the importance of our position as audience. By engaging with Pahoki’s photographs, complex issues of our psychological well-being are challenged. These works provoke reaction to and reflection into ourselves in the context of our environment”.
