Quantum Site (Collider) 2019

JON BUTT | COLLIDER

July 13, 2019 - September 1, 2019
Opening: July 20, 2019 - 2-4pm

Collider is a site responsive video work that investigates physical and conceptual notions of landscape as matter and phenomena.

Using video sequences, this work places the Bundoora Homestead site within a shifting scale of material territories, molecular energies and entropic disorder. Collider includes both abstracted and live video sequences shot throughout the Homestead grounds and across the Bundoora Park and Mt Cooper area that appear to be capturing unknown, signalling phenomena. The work depicts time, space and place where the idea of a site is viewed as both poetic and quantum.

COLOUR AND FANTASY: Australia’s First Colonial Art Potters 1896-1910

July 11, 2019 - September 1, 2019
Opening: July 20, 2019 - 2-4pm

In the nineteenth century, Brunswick was the centre of Australia’s pottery manufacturing and was accordingly dubbed “Australia’s Little Staffordshire.” The exhibition focuses on three key figures from this period; The Ferry brothers, William and Graham, and Richard Sturrock. This trio’s loose collaboration produced exceptional wares from 1896 to 1910 of a type never before seen in Australia. They are considered early pioneers of our studio pottery movement and went on to illuminate and inspire their successors.
