Gallery 1 :: grappling on the precipice of the squirt and the stream
Kieran Bryant

grappling on the precipice of the squirt and the stream presents a series of video, mixed-media installation, and collaborative live performance that examine differing modes of a fluid queered body experience in its connection to both water and the hole. This exhibition asks how water, through its relationship with holes and orifices, can be a conduit to discuss themes of queer visibility and identity signification; re-contextualisation of image and sound in popular and contemporary culture; and collaborative distance.

Gallery 2 :: Don’t think of me as gone
Jodie Whalen

Don’t think of me as gone is a new installation that asks the viewer to question ideas of love and devotion, grief, obsessions and belief, beauty and fantasy. Exploring experiences, routines and rituals of the everyday. Repeated experiences that are designed to take us from one state into another and that marks the progression of time. Whalen’s practice of site-specific installation envelops the audience through its relational harmony and balance to the site. Pushing the audience to respond to the site as a place of reflection, meditation and ritual.
