A Fabled Object
This week The BSA Project space features A Fabled Object: a small-object show featuring the work of Marie J Engelsvold (Denmark), Lynda Draper, Susie Duggin, Marian Hosking, Peta Kruger, Sarah Lindner, Kate Tucker and Kat Shapiro Wood. The eight participating artists were invited to make any object that could fit through the door of the BSA Project Space.
One of the exhibition curators, artist Susie Duggin, explains: ‘The artists brought together for this show are all long-held heroes of mine who work in the realm of the object and play with the line between object and sculptural painting. Most work across multiple media and materials and have put together their “fabled” objects that traverse the mythical and earthly and show the importance of story to enhancing a life well lived.’ Opens Friday at 6pm and runs until 4 October at the BSA Project Space, Byron School of Art, 112 Dalley St, Mullumbimby.
Lap it Up
Switchboard Media Group is excited to release the one-and-only world premiere date for their adventure-travel reality TV series documentary The Lap of Tasmania, narrated by award-winning Australian actor Martin Sacks. The Lap of Tasmania is a documentary, following Dustin Hollick and Rhian Slapp, two ordinary fathers with the survival skills of well-trained house pets, on a two-week journey around Tasmania with not much more than the clothes on their backs. The rules are simple: no cash, no car, no technology and just 10 personal items each. These scruffy surfers from the east coast of Australia leave home to learn the secrets of a well-balanced life and aim to get back a connection with nature that has been lost with the advent of modern convenience.
The one-hour screening will take place at The Byron Theatre on Thursday at 7pm. Q&A with the cast Dustin Hollick, Rhian Slapp, and director Angie Davis, following the screening. Tickets: $23.30* (Purchase online: www.byroncentre.com.au)
