Although Perth might be far away from your thoughts, I have a work or two in Yellow Vest Syndrome — some digital prints from the Geologist Series and a walking video herethere (above and below).
Yellow Vest Syndrome: recent west Australian art is about changing perceptions of landscape and country. It seeks a fresh perspective on a theme that had always been at the forefront of contemporary visual arts in Perth.
Date: 30 January 2009
Time: 18:30 – 21:00
Location: Fremantle Arts Centre
1 Finnerty St
Presented at a time when the State has been experiencing an unparalleled resources-driven boom, the exhibition is intended to provide an opportunity to reflect on what we value. Its critique is founded in a persistent idea that if you are wearing a yellow work vest you can get away with anything in Western Australia.
New graduates join established artists in this broad exhibition which encompasses every media.
Artists: Daniel Bourke/Jeremy Davis/Lisa Purcell, Tim Burns, Susanna Castleden, Erin Coates, Penny Coss, Annabel Dixon, George Egerton-Warburton, Sarah Elson, fremantlestories.com, Tarryn Gill and Pilar Mata Dupont, Mike Gray, Caitlin Harrison, Bevan Honey, Milly Kelly, Gian Manik, Tom Mùller, Mark Parfitt, Christopher Pease, Perdita Phillips, pvi, Layli Rakhsha, Trevor Richards, Nalda Searles, Alex Spremberg, Aubrey Tigan and Brendan Van Hek
