Far from the lands of East Gippsland, Calling for Rain has found a new soil on which to, again, blossom. Thanks to curator Jackie Terrett, my project will be on display for a month at 107 Project in Redfern, as part of Piss Poor Effect.2 art show.
As an Artist Run Initiative, ignited by old and young art souls full of energy and determination, it includes everything an artist like me looks for. It is a vibrant precinct, with a daring program that would conquer any square minded public, and people who volunteer there seem to always be up for a challenge.
When visiting 107, you will find it unpretentious and approachable yet don't be fooled, the art-vibe-load contained within its walls will stick to your skin long after. It is deep and high, from the toilets to the front window, no space is left untouched. Art is everywhere.
The opening of the show is on Wednesday the 2nd (yes, THIS Wednesday). There will be 3 art performances, an in-situ display, photographies... just name it, the list goes on. In total, 8 artists' works are presented to the public including my large ink paintings that will be on display next to the community artworks created by the Tambo Valley residents, last March.
As you can see, it is all happening, so make sure to come along. You would hate missing on such a night.
