ROOMAN

26 – 29 September 2019,

ROOMAN (my new show) tells the tale of a girl who meets a half-man-half-kangaroo in her dreams, and falls in love. Obsessed by becoming a part of his reality, she takes desperate measures. Like a Hi-Fi Paper Pop up Book or a low-tech hologram, the theatrical performance takes the audience on a journey inside worlds of animated universes as they unfold upon a giant 3-dimensional paper set. ROOMAN premiered at ARTS HOUSE in Melbourne before going on to tour in Slovenia, The Netherlands and New Zealand.

ROOMAN will perform in PORT ADELAIDE from the 26th-29th of September 2019,

Other Homes and Gardens

Nicholas Folland

30 July – 30 August 2019

In this hugely ambitious new exhibition, South Australian art superstar Nicholas Folland imagines a world in which cosy notions of domestic security are thrillingly destabilised. Combining installation with kinetic sculpture, Other Homes and Gardens inverts the idea of the Anthropocene, depicting humankind at the mercy of dangerous and implacable natural forces. Simultaneously uncanny and darkly humorous, this never before seen exhibition is not to be missed!

Idolatrous Centralis

Opening: 15 August 2019

Idolatrous Centralis is the exploration of emotive responses towards creative individuals who inevitably push boundaries within a personal environmental context. Whether these creative individuals are musicians, designers, artists or poets, there is a common thread of energy, which can transform thinking and open up a dialogue of intrigue, mystery and radical interpretation of a lived environment. The artists will interpret whimsical corners of these worlds in the production of artworks to showcase for this exhibition.

The Scene is the seen

Opening: Thursday 27th August, 6-9pm
Ekphrasis workshop: Saturday 31st August, 1:30-2:30pm
No Wave poetry night: Thursday 12th September, 6-7pm
Performance night: Saturday 21st September, 6-9pm

This exhibition, performance and critical writing event of emerging and mid-career South Australian practitioners explores the potent relationship between text and art. Responding to a curated selection of writing from notable artists and theorists, each artist will conceive an ambitious work that transforms meaning and translation whilst echoing the principles of the original text. Each piece of writing touches on themes of ongoing critical and artistic concern – melancholia, displacement, identity, culture and language. For this exhibition artists will be challenged to experiment with the very process of art making whilst considering the creative potential of language.

The performance night will include a succession of performances amongst the exhibited works. A series of curated public programs will further explore the themes of the exhibition including a poetry night lead by No Wave collective and an Ekphrasis workshop delivered in partnership with Writers SA and SALA.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a full colour catalogue and essay from co-curator Rayleen Forester and poetry from Unbound Collective.

Dictatorship of Gravity (and other micro-politics)

Opening: 8 August, 5:30 – 7:30pm

Emerging South Australian artists Felicity Townsend and Loren Orsillo began their Artist in Residence roles at Carclew at the beginning of 2019. This opportunity has enabled the two young artists to develop and explore their practices, as well as the freedom and space to create new bodies of work.

Exploring both compliance and rebellion against rules, conventions and forces that construct our reality, both artists employ installation to push boundaries both real and imagined. From the fundamental interconnectedness of sub-atomic forces through to mundane specimens of material culture, this exhibition examines the micro-conditions that collectively govern our lived realities.

New Sculptural Works
Tsering Hannaford

Opeing: 31 July, 6-8pm

Portraiture is the focus of my practice and I’m interested in examining the roles and expectations of women through self-portraiture. This body of work presents a departure from traditional tonal realism, and an exploration of the psyche through sculptural form. In a hyper self-conscious culture, individualistic preoccupations can become disempowering obstacles to agency in the world.
