Our most recent exhibition Hatched National Graduate Show 2016 is coming to a close. We need some amazing volunteers to help take it down and to put up our next exhibition Radical Ecologies. Gain experience in meticulous condition reporting and unpacking of artworks as well as some painting and wall maintenance; all very important skills for anyone involved in the making, handling and exhibition of art. Additionally the install of Radical Ecologies will see an exciting schedule featuring a huge diversity of art forms, AV set up and painting.
A major group exhibition, Radical Ecologies is a sensory invitation to question our complex relationships with our own bodies, each other and the natural world. Featuring new work by Western Australian artists practicing at the sharpest edge of contemporary practice, Radical Ecologies acknowledges our continued environmental dystopia and in response offers a range of therapeutic experiences.
Visitors are invited to decipher 850 romance novels rewritten by termites, to lay down with bees, locate a complex olfactory landscape and listen to a musical soundscape woven from the sounds of Perth’s Swan River. Ecosexual confessions are whispered through the walls of Pony Express’s self-contained replica sauna and a robotic third arm is controlled remotely from the other side of the globe as world-renowned artist Stelarc becomes a human avatar, live in the gallery.
This exhibition creates hothouses of enquiry and invites the visitor into arousing environments that complicate gender, sexuality, and question the complex relationship between our bodies and the natural world.
