Liminal Spaces: Escaping the frame

Liminal Spaces: Escaping the frame

16th May 2017 - 16th Jul 2017

Gallery Three, Artspace Mackay

A new media installation by local artist Glenda Hobdell presents alternate views that are informed by the experience of two caves – one in Hungary, the other in Australia. A synthesis of immense hanging panels, animated videos, light projections and sonic effects reveal an interplay between light and dark, reflection and shadow, positive and negative, still and moving, physical and digital.

Gallery Two, Artspace Mackay

As a firm believer in DIY, research and experimentation is an important part of Wimhurst’s practice and if that means sourcing a completely new material and exploring its capabilities or mastering a new technique, or even to make the necessary tools to do a specific job from scratch, so be it.

Conceptually, his sculptures are inspired by consumerism, design, pop culture, mortality and humour - and in particular the point of which these themes may meet or intersect. Free entry.

Gallery One, Artspace Mackay

Originally created for the 19th Biennale of Sydney (2014) this exhibition comprises 20 life-sized photographic portraits realised through ongoing discussion, exchange and art making between the artist, the subjects and the contributors. The subjects represent a fascinating cross section of contemporary Australia with each portrait telling an intimate story of the subject’s life.  Kelly creates mixed-media artworks that are at once unexpected, humorous, provocative, and profound. Free entry.

Peter Lyssiotis: Where are the originals? Once were photographs...

27th May 2017 - 16th Jul 2017

Gallery One, Artspace Mackay

Where are the Originals? slows down the frantic pace of photography in the modern era, pausing for a breath in our rush to capture every moment by taking an over-the-shoulder look at photography and interrogating it.  Amongst other things this exhibition posits the view that once an idea has been stretched, almost to breaking point, it will return inevitably to the original.  Free entry.
