A few ideas…

Share Button

 

Here are a few suggestions for the next week or so. Perhaps there is something here that you may like to investigate…

Sometimes its easy to get trapped into viewing the same things, or doing what we know and feel comfortable with. This could even be visiting the same cafe every single day. Well, we all have our favourites, but how do you know there isn’t another, making something heavenly down the road, if you never venture there?  There are lots of different types of people making different types of art. Some of it may not be to your liking. But anyone who bothers to read this post, I dare say would have a clue- that it really is just as much about the process and the idea (if not arguably more)- as it is the final outcome.

I will be back soon with more interviews to devour.

Ok I know-I know- But I can’t help the food metaphors with Easter on the horizon!

Happy Easter, I hope you have a delicious break!

Sensory art exhibit provides personal insights into living life with a hearing loss

Disconnections

A free one-off, multimedia exhibit that shares the experience of having a hearing loss with the public will be held on Thursday, 9 April at the HEARing Cooperative Research Centre, (HEARing CRC) in Carlton.

In an Australian first, the Disconnections exhibit features two multimedia pieces created specifically to put people inside the mind of a person with hearing loss so they can experience first-hand the sensory deprivation and social isolation that comes with hearing loss.

Created by established media artist and academic Dr Trish Adams, Disconnections draws upon her personal experiences of hearing loss to create interactive artworks that demonstrate how hearing loss impacts on most aspects of living, particularly communication – something most people take for granted.

Dr Adams developed the project that led to Disconnections following a period of scientific research with Prof. Antonio Paolini at his ‘Sensory Lab’ at the Health Innovations Research Institute, RMIT University.

After this experience, Dr Adams moved into the artwork developmental phase in collaboration with RMIT University Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellow, Dr Jonathan Duckworth, and his CiART team at the School of Media and Communication.

“This collaborative relationship with CiART was instrumental in providing the research expertise and knowledge essential in communicating and translating the complexities of art/science concepts through contemporary media art,” Dr Adams said.

For Disconnections, Dr Adams has developed two artworks that continue the narrative of sensorial community engagement. The first work called Inaudible City is a large-scale projection of video sequences that portrays Melbourne’s familiar urban landscape.

The second, called Fractured_Message, is a portrait-style video of a young man who the viewer cannot properly understand due to a soundtrack of inaudible and distorted speech.

Both works explore the frustration and unease of a hearing impaired pedestrian struggling to make sense of auditory aspects encountered in today’s urban environment.

Hosted by the HEARing CRC, Disconnections will be launched on Thursday, 9 April at The University of Melbourne’s Audiology, Hearing and Speech Sciences Building, 550 Swanston St, Carlton. For more information about the event, please visit: www.hearsmart.org/disconnections

The exhibits officially opens at 5.30pm with a talk by audiologist and lecturer Dr Caitlin Grenness (The University of Melbourne) who will speak about new approaches in hearing healthcare that empower individuals in determining how they want their hearing loss managed.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its art funding and advisory body. The HEARing CRC is financially supported by the Cooperative Research Centres Programme – an Australian Government Initiative.

For catering purposes, please RSVP glawrence@hearingcrc.org.au before 8 April 2015.

 

 

AUGUSTE CLOWN GALLERY PRESENTS

‘SPECTRUM’ A NEW SERIES OF WORK BY MAB GRAVES


Spectrum

Joining us in Australia for the very first time, American pop-surrealist Mab Graves brings with her an imagined world of candy coloured girls, intergalactic cats and supernatural specimens for her newest exhibition of work, “Spectrum”.

On show at Auguste Clown Gallery from 17th April – 3rd May , Spectrum heralds in a new collection of paintings, illustrations, miniatures and sculptures inspired by the prism of Mab’s passions. Mab has taken a beautifully blank slate and unleashed all the pieces living inside her head to explore new themes, shapes and spectrums of colour.

Mab Graves is a contemporary artist and illustrator living and painting in a converted 1800’s tavern in a small corner of Indianapolis. A self-taught artist, Mab has shown in galleries both in the United States and internationally, and had her art published within books and magazines worldwide. Her work has been sold in more than 56 countries.

 

Mab’s art is deeply inspired by fairy tales and old classic literature. She adores narrative and attributes her creative process to a childhood spent reading stories with three sisters and a very vivid imagination that has allowed her to continue to dream…

“For this new collection I decided to challenge myself. With no planned direction, I had absolute freedom. I started thinking about what I wanted to bring into being. I decided I would unleash all the pieces that had been living inside my head – wanting to come out – but that I’d never been able to grant myself the time to create. I wanted to give myself the liberty to play with inspirations I’d been holding onto for years.” – Mab Graves
