HERE IN THE UNDERGROWTH
5 – 22 OCT 2016
John Stephen Britten | James Farley + Jacob Raupach | Tara Gilbee | Ebony Gulliver | Matthew Harris | Claire Marston | Steph Shields | Ian Tully
Here in the Undergrowth presents the work of 8 regional artists from Victoria and New South Wales whose practices are as diverse and varied as the regions from which they come. Traversing neon, sound, photography, installation and painting, this project highlights what has been lurking in the undergrowth, and opens up a discussion about the relationship between the arts communities of metropolitan and regional areas.
Here in the Undergrowth grew out of the BLINDSIDE /NETS Victoria touring exhibition Synthetica, which toured to Swan Hill, Wangaratta, Gippsland, Wagga Wagga and Melbourne. At each location a local artist was included in the Synthetica exhibition, forming the first stage of Here in the Undergrowth. These artists, as well as more artists that were uncovered during regional research trips, will now present their work in the second stage of the project at BLINDSIDE.
