Curated by writer and artist, Kevin Wilson, about-place / about-face takes a very different viewpoint on the concept of ‘natural place’. Working from the assumption that our perspective and understanding of ‘natural place’ is imbued with our own lived experience, 16 artists have produced artworks ranging from painting, photography, digital animation, video, sculpture, moving image installation and collaborative works that examine the idea that when we look at a place, we inevitably look in a mirror at ourselves.

Artists involved are: Kevin Wilson, Simone Eisler, Colin Pennock, Nicole Voevodin-Cash, Joolie Gibb, Emma Thorp, Mathew Stanton, Melissa Stannard, Kalulah Bird (Luke Barrowcliffe), John Fuller, Karla Pringle, Sharka Bosakova, Katie Harris-MacLeod, Marguerite de Mosa, James Muller and Kane Brunies (Kabi Kabi).

For more information, see Traverses, a film series based on traversing interviews on a forested property in Kin Kin, Queensland, created collaboratively with each participant

Launch event is on Friday 10th May at 6.00pm. This is a strictly ticketed event, please purchase your tickets and bring along either digitally or printed for admittance at the door.
