ANGELA TIATIA | HOLDING ON

September 20, 2018 - November 11, 2018
Opening: September 22, 2018 - 2–4pm

Filmed on Tuvalu in the South Pacific, one of the most endangered nations currently facing the impacts of climate change, Holding On captures a struggle between the body of the artist and the body of the ocean as the tide gradually comes in. Tiatia’s video speaks of the constant and unrelenting faith required of the people of the Pacific whose islands and homes are increasingly coming under threat by climate change. As the light fades into darkness, it is unknown whether she will be able to hold on or be swept away.

ROZALIND DRUMMOND | PROCESS BLUE, NATURE TRIPS, CORDUROY, PINE SHELVING

September 20, 2018 - November 11, 2018
Opening: June 22, 2018 - 2–4pm

A half-way house and alternative school once located near Bundoora Homestead, ‘Kingsbury’ forms the backdrop to this exhibition. In the 1970s, Kingsbury embraced an experimental culture of encounter sessions, consciousness raising, group discussions, readings and performance. Rozalind Drummond mines this complex history through digital photography, film and found imagery. The work suggests a series of fabricated scenarios, depicting trans-historical meetings, associations about people that once occupied Kingsbury.
